HRPA DESIGNATIONS What is changing? Why are there changes occurring with the designations? HRPA

HRPA DESIGNATIONS What is changing? Why are there changes occurring with the designations? HRPA belonged to the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) until June 30, 2014. The CCHRA was the governing body of the HRPA and administered the National Knowledge Exam (NKE). They had oversight of the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation in Ontario. As of June 30, 2014, HRPA began operating independently so that they could focus their resources and energies in areas that were the highest priority to their members. One area of focus was the restructuring of the human resources designations. HRPA changed the designations on October 29, 2014. What new designations are there? The Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation still exists; however, it is now considered an entry-level designation. Two new designations have been added: -Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) – Professional-Level (replaced the previous CHRP) -Certified Human Resources Executive (CHRE) – Executive-Level (replaced the Senior Human Resources Professional ( SHRP) designation).
