As an HR professional, you know the HR field is constantly evolving to enhance Canadian business and workplaces. In order to be most effective in our workplaces, it is important we keep abreast of changes to the industry. The recertification process ensures HR professionals continue to have mastery over HR's body of knowledge encompassed in the Required Professional Capabilities [RPCs]*as it changes through time.
Through recertification, HR professionals are able to send a strong message to employers and the public they are up-to-date on the latest legislation, best practices and trends and are able to provide the most effective workplace solutions.
*Please note that CCHRA's Professional Standards Committee (PSC) and Independent Board of Examiners (IBE) routinely review the RPCs for currency and to ensure they remain relevant to changing Canadian legislation, workplaces and business needs.
How Often do CHRP Holders Recertify and What are the Methods for Recertification?
As a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP), you will be required to recertify every three years to maintain the currency of your CHRP designation. Recertification can be obtained either by performing and documenting professional development experience as it relates to the RPCs or by taking the National Professional Practice Assessment TM.
Please keep in mind: Membership in your provincial CHRP designation granting HR association must be renewed annually to qualify for recertification.
