Deadline to register for National Knowledge Exam

September 5, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Want to become a CPHR?
The first step in becoming a CPHR is to write the National Knowledge Exam (NKE). To learn more, click here.
The next NKE is being held on November 4, 2017. 
The registration deadline is September 5, 2017.


Exam Fees

The cost of writing the NKE is $400 (HST included).  Please register and pay here.

Exam Refunds and Deferrals

Once the registration deadline has passed, exam fees are non-refundable.  After this 60 day deadline and up until 7 days prior to the exam, you may defer to the next sitting but will be charged a deferral fee of $100 + HST, except in cases of illness or bereavement (official verification required). Within 7 calendar days of the exam date, deferrals are not allowed unless there is verified proof of extenuating circumstances such as serious illness or loss of immediate family. 

Registrants who defer to a future sitting and then cancel their registration any time prior to this sitting will forfeit their initial exam fee plus any deferral fee paid. 

Thirty days prior to the scheduled exam date, you will receive written confirmation of your registration to write the NKE.  The test location, time and any necessary procedures will also be outlined in this letter.

How to Prepare for the NKE
CPHR NL offers a 2 day preparatory course (subject to minimum registration numbers). The date will be determined soon. For more information about an online course and other tips for preparing for the exam, click here. (

**Please note that it is a requirement of CPHR Canada (formerly CCHRA) that all members who successfully complete the NKE must remain a member of a provincial organization in good standing to retain their passing test grade.  Failure to maintain your membership will result in your passing result being removed from the CPHR Canada database, and you will be required to pay all fees and pass the exam again if you wish to pursue the CPHR designation at a later date.
