Required Courses for Canadian and Foreign Candidates


The CPHR Academic Program provides the required courses for attaining certification as a CPHR. Each course is authored by leading Canadian HR academics, and taught by qualified instructors. You may register for only the course(s) you need. A CPHR Academic Program Completion Certificate is provided upon completion of this nine course Program with at least four of the courses taken here; and the remaining courses may be credited through Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition, if you have previously taken equivalent courses. Completion of this Program can also qualify you to take the National Knowledge Exam (NKE).

Or take our Accredited Option with an NKE Exemption. Find out about it > Here.
