How can you obtain your CHRP?
Apply for a membership with HRMAM.
Register for and pass the National Knowledge exam ®(NKE)The NKE tests your knowledge of the theory and standards upon which HR practices are based. Upon successful completion you will become a "CHRP Candidate". This status is recognized nationally and can be transferred between provinces.
Confirm that a bachelor degree has been completed by sending us official transcripts from the granting university OR if degree was completed outside of Canada, have IQAS or WES send an assessment of the degree directly to our office.

Passed the NKE in 2012 or are currently a CHRP Candidate:
The options of writing the National Professional Practice Assessment (NPPA) and the experience validation are both options until June 2013. If you have the experience that you believe fulfills the requirements for the experience validation, you may choose to forego the NPPA in favor of the experience validation.
Pass the NKE in 2013:
As of January
1, 2013, CHRP Candidates (those who have successfully completed the National
Knowledge Exam ®) will be subject to an experience assessment to complete their
designation rather than the NPPA exam. The CHRP Experience Assessment is a
formal step in earning the CHRP designation that requires candidates to
demonstrate three or more years of professional experience in human resources
within the last ten years. This requirement will come into effect
on January 1, 2013 and will replace the National Professional Practice
Assessment® (NPPA). The final NPPA exam sitting will be in June
of 2013. To read more on the Experience Assessment click here.
