Human Resources Management – Graduate Certificate

Human resources professionals know all too well that a company is only as good as the people it employs. Earn your certificate in Human Resources, and you’ll have the skills and experience to become a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) by exploring recruiting opportunities, challenges, and strategies; organizational management; labour relations, and more.

The curriculum in Human Resources Management is designed to boost your existing qualifications and to support you if you intend to pursue your Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. The nine core courses required to access the National Knowledge Exam (NKE) are approved by the Ontario Human Resources Professionals Association. Additional courses include mediation, practitioner seminars, and an eight-week placement in a professional human resources environment. Information on the Human Resources Professionals Association and the CHRP designation is available by visiting hrpa.ca .

CHRP Designation

The Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) regulates the human resources profession in Ontario and issues the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. Completion of HRPA's certification process confers the right to use the title Certified Human Resources Professional and the right to use the initials C.H.R.P. or CHRP after one's name (excerpt from HRPA's website). It is the responsibility of the graduate to pursue certification.
