As of July 20, 2022, Ashton College aligned its Diploma in Human Resources Management with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). With over 300,000 members in over 165 countries, The Society of Human Resources Management is truly a global HR Organization. SHRM offers two sought-after credentials, the SHRM-CP (Certified Professional) and the SHRM-SCP (Certified Senior Certified Professional). A student enrolled in Ashton College's DHRM is entitled to take the SHRM-CP credential examination without any further education and at a reduced examination fee. Ashton College DHRM students can also register for a reduced rate membership in SHRM to receive all member benefits. Local and Global Companies not only recognize the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credentials but actively seek graduates with these credentials.

The Diploma in Human Resources Management (DHRM) program helps you understand how human resources professionals manage an organization's employees. This program supports all the activities that go into providing services and working with an organization's management team. During the program, students will explore a number of important topics including workforce planning, human resources development, compensation and benefits, labour relations, occupational health and safety and HRIS software. No prior human resources experience is required for joining the program. 

Students do not have to take their SHRM Credential Examination in Canada. After completing the Diploma in Human Resources Management, students can take either the SHRM-CP or the SHRM-SCP at any in-person Prometric Testing Centre worldwide or online using Prometric's ProProctor platform.
