Chartered Professional in Human Resources

The Human Resources Institute of Alberta (HRIA) has changed its name to CPHR Alberta (Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Alberta).

Through, CPHR Alberta, members can obtain a Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) designation. The CPHR is recognized across nine professional human resources associations in Canada and represents 27,000 human resources professionals practicing in Canada.

The Alberta School of Business and CPHR Alberta have developed a pathway for Alberta BCom graduates and, if you are interested in the CPHR designation, you may be eligible to have the National Knowledge Exam waived upon completion of your BCom Degree. To be considered you need a minimum GPA of 2.7 on the following courses:
