NEW EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT COMING FOR FUTURE CHRPS
As of January 1, 2013 a new national requirement for professional experience in human resources will be required in order to obtain the CHRP Designation.
The CHRP Experience Requirement is a formal step in earning one's CHRP designation requiring candidates to demonstrate three or more years of professional experience in human resources within the last ten years. HR experience is already a prerequisite in some provincial associations and will be required in all provinces as of January 1, 2013.
Experience has always been an integral component in achieving one's CHRP designation. This requirement simply asks HR practitioners to demonstrate their ability to apply the knowledge and skills gained from their formal education and experience to a workplace environment. HR practitioners need to demonstrate that they have worked in a position (or positions) that require a cultivated knowledge and a professional level of responsibility in HR for a minimum of three years. Additionally, experience must be gained within the last ten years,
HR practitioners can work toward the Experience Requirement in any sector of the economy: industry, government, public practice, professional associations, education, healthcare, or not-for-profits - essentially anywhere that has a human resources management function.
More information and details will be coming in the following months.
