Maintaining your CPHR

Chartered Professionals in Human Resources advance and expand their professional knowledge and practice across the competency areas, throughout their careers.

Once you obtain your CPHR designation, there is an ongoing requirement to maintain your competency, demonstrated by achieving the standards for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) each year.

As a CPHR, you are required to complete a minimum 10 qualifying CPD hours per year and 60 qualifying CPD hours on an ongoing three-year rolling basis and to report those activities to your provincial member association.

Please note: CPHR Canada and its member associations have introduced a mandatory three- hour ethics requirement that all CPHR designees must include as part of each rolling three-year CPD requirement period starting in 2021-2024. The three-hour CPD requirement can be obtained through various providers that offer ethics training, however CPHR Canada has partnered with Neovox Media and created a free four-hour ethics course called Professionals in Grey Areas – How to Make Ethical Decisions. Contact your provincial association for more information and to access the course. There are two files referenced in the course that can be found here and here.

There are steadily increasing opportunities to expand your knowledge and expertise and support the advancement of your career through CPHR accredited CPD programs and conferences across Canada.

Because the CPHR is a provincially granted designation, requirements may vary slightly in your province. Please consult your member association for details on requirements.
