 Evening Academic Program

Fall 2014 Registration now open! Registration Deadline: Sept 5, 2014

The Evening Academic Program (EAP) provides the educational foundation for a career in human resources management. It has been designed specifically to help individuals meet the academic course requirements necessary for completing the coursework requirement for the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation.

Adult learners comprise the majority of our student population. As a result, classes remain relatively small in size (a maximum capacity of 34 to 36 people) to ensure an interactive environment where students are given the undivided attention they require.

The EAP runs on a three semester schedule, with semesters beginning in the fall (September to December), winter (January to April) and spring (May to August).

The program is available at HRPA’s office in downtown Toronto:

HRPA Education Centre
150 Bloor Street West
Suite 200
Toronto, Ontario
M5S 2X9
Fax: 416-923-8956

Please note that students attending evening classes starting at 6:30 p.m. may not enter the classroom before 6:00 p.m.

Program Entry Requirements

There is no English proficiency requirement needed to register for courses in the Evening Academic Program. However, to ensure success in the courses, it is strongly recommended that course registrants have both verbal and written proficiency at the post-secondary level.

There are no prerequisite courses to be completed before registering in any of the HRPA Evening Academic Program courses.

It is recommended that individuals registering for finance and managerial accounting have a basic understanding of accounting concepts to ensure success in the course.
