An individual must maintain registration in good standing with HRPA from the point they start their CHRP or CHRL certification process through the completion of the process. The start of the certification process is defined as the earlier of the following events:
Submission of one or more transcripts towards meeting the CHRP or CHRL
Submission of a degree transcript towards meeting the CHRL
Registration for the CHRP or CHRL
Comprehensive Knowledge Exam (CKE)
Application for the
Validation of Experience, or
Application for other certification related processes such as the
Alternate Route, Course Approval and Challenge Exams.
Once the CHRP, CHRL or CHRE has been earned, membership in good standing with HRPA as well as meeting the continuing professional development (CPD) requirement is required in order to maintain the designations. Unlike other credentials such as degrees, professional designations require that the regulatory body have ongoing jurisdiction over its members.
Individuals with questions regarding the registration requirement and certification are encouraged to contact the
Office of the Registrar.
