Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) dues collected by BC HRMA allow us to fulfill the mandate of administering the CHRP in BC and our commitment to offering a high standard of service. A part of the dues covers governance, staffing, supplies and the development of new CHRP marketing and promotional material. The remainder of the fees allows BC HRMA to work in conjunction with the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) to maintain the standards and continuously raise the profile of CHRP at both the provincial and national level. One hundred per cent of professional dues collected by BC HRMA are reinvested in the CHRP designation. Professional dues are $105 plus HST annually, in addition to your membership dues.
CHRP holders are required to recertify every three years through their provincial association. Recertification can be achieved either through reassessment by the NPPA, or through a range of professional development activities. A reminder that the assessment of experience will replace the NPPA completely after the final sitting of the NPPA exam in June of 2013, removing this as a recertification option. Find out more about recertification.
CHRP Recertification Audit
Recertification audits are carried out by the Recertification Audit Committee twice a year. Selection of a recertification log for audit is random based on CHRP ID numbers. The audit process will reconfirm the eligibility for recertification, review the completeness of documentation, and verify the appropriateness, suitability and adequacy of the professional development activities listed in the recertification log. If audited, a CHRP holder must provide supporting documents for their recertification log to the recertification committee within 30 days. Find out more about CHRP Recertification Audits.
Code of Ethics
CHRP holders commit themselves to high standards of ethical behaviour. All CHRPs are held to the CCHRA National Code of Ethics which cover a range of important professional issues including confidentiality, conflict of interest, professional growth and more. The Code of Ethics demand the highest standards for the HR profession.
Leave of Absence
A professional member who is granted parental or disability leave from their place of employment may apply for suspended membership and recertification extensions. Professional members retiring may apply for retirement status. Find out more about leaves of absence.
Transfer from/to Another Province
To maintain your CHRP designation you must maintain membership in BC HRMA or the association responsible for CHRP certification in the province where you reside. When a professional member of BC HRMA moves to another province, they are required to transfer their membership to the association of the new province of residence.
