Program Highlights

This certificate gives you a skillset that includes up-to-date Canadian regulations and policies, working with the different levels of an organization, compensation administration, recruitment, training, labour relations and other key HR components.

Fleming's Certificate and the CHRP™ Designation

All HRM courses have been approved as academic credits by the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) and thus qualify as credits for the National Knowledge Exam (NKE™) set by the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA). To obtain the Certificate, Fleming requires a passing grade in every course. However, to qualify to write the NKE™, the passing of which is mandatory to attain the CHRP™ designation, an overall average of at least 70 percent must be attained in the nine required courses, with no mark less than 65 percent.

Attaining CCHRA recognition requires joining a provincial HR association (such as Ontario's HRPA). In Ontario, as of October 29, 2014, the requirements for the CHRP designation are:

As of Spring 2016, a Job Ready program must also be successfully completed, and as of Summer 2016, an HR law exam must also be successfully completed.

Members with the CHRP designation must maintain their membership in HRPA and must meet the ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) requirement in order to maintain the designation.
