This applies to continuing students or any other student registering with HRMPEB by 3oth June 2022

Certified Human Resource Professional (CHRP) is a professional course offered by the Human Resource Management Professional Examinations Board (HRMPEB) for individuals looking to embark within or are already practicing HR professionals.

The course is divided into three (3) segments and each segment has two modules each lasting six months. This is for the entry level HR professional without any HR background as well as those already working in the HR profession but with no relevant qualifications.

The course outline provides the general body of the HR knowledge and skills required to manage tasks within the scope of human resources.

For candidates completing the CHRP Level I, they must undertake a workplace attachment exercise that will be supervised by both the training institution as well as the host organization. At the end of the attachment, the candidate has to submit a workplace attachment report to the training institution.

Once candidates are successful in undertaking the two levels, then they qualify to progress to the higher levels of Human Resource Training.
