Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


Beginning June 1, 2016 CPHRs are required to report a minimum of 100 hours of professional development activity every three years on a cumulative basis and a minimum of 20 hours each year. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) signifies continued mastery of the CPHR Competency Framework, which outlines 44 discipline specific professional competencies.
