New Path to Becoming a CPHR for International HR Professionals - CPHR NL

Attention International HR Professionals! Exciting news regarding a new path to becoming a CPHR:

As a result of the various Memorandums of Understanding that we have signed with like-minded bodies around the world including SHRM- United States of America, AHRI- Australia, CIPD-United Kingdom, HKIHARM-Hong Kong we have a new pathway to obtain your CPHR:

  1. Be a CPHR NL member in good standing
  2. Transfer an equivalent designation from an international organization from whom CPHR NL or CPHR Canada has a Mutual Resignation Agreement or they have deemed it to be substantially equivalent to or greater than the CPHR.

Approved designations include:

  • The AHRI from Australia
  • CIPD from the United Kingdom
  • HKIHARM from Hong Kong
  • SHRM from the United States

Once becoming a CPHR Candidate, you have ten (10) years to complete the process to obtain the CPHR.
