Continuing Professional Development
CHRP, CHRL and CHRE members are required to obtain 66.67 hours of professional development activities for every three-year CPD cycle. There are no minimum required hours each year (only the aggregate three-year requirement), but certified members are strongly encouraged to design their professional development plan that outlines a personal learning schedule for each year in their CPD cycle.
HRPA Learning and Professional Development programs offer certified members a variety of comprehensive, cost-effective learning options to continuously improve their capabilities while meeting the CPD requirement. Members may choose qualifying programs directly from the HRPA, or from an alternate provider.
