Management Certificate in Human Resources

We are going virutal! 

Starting with Interpersonal Communications we will be delivering a synchronous learning experience via Zoom. With live instructors we hope to be able to capture a similar experience to our in-class program but in the comfort of your own home! See dates below or on the registration page.

The Management Certificate Program (MCP) in Human Resources is a professional non-credit program approved by the Senate of Carleton University. Its courses are recognized by the Human Resources Professional Association of Ontario.

Participants will be able to achieve all nine credit coursework requirements to write the Comprehensive Knowledge Exam (CKE1/CKE2) through the HRPA to be eligible for the CHRP and CHRL Designations.  Please refer to the HRPA website to ensure that you meet the additional requirements to write the CKE1/CKE2.

Classes are small, enabling a lively exchange. Courses are facilitated by experts who have not only achieved professional designations in their specialization, but most have also obtained the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. Participants share knowledge and experiences through group discussions, case study analysis, and interactive presentations.

All courses in the Management Certificate in Human Resources Program are offered on an open enrollment basis.  We highly recommend registration well in advance of the start date of each course as they often reach capacity very quickly.
