Get your CPHR Designation from Anywhere in Canada

VANCOUVER, BC, September 25, 2019 – Ashton College, a leading post-secondary education provider, announced that its Diploma in Human Resources Management program (DHRM), will be offered online across Canada, including Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Saskatchewan. The DHRM program is one of the pathways for candidates to achieve their CPHR designation without having to take the National Knowledge Exam (NKE). Candidates also have the added advantage of becoming a CPHR in just three short months if they opt for the full-time program.

CPHR, a nationally-recognised level of achievement and capability within the field of human resources, signifies that the holder has all the required knowledge and skills relevant to the human resource profession. Having a CPHR designation is becoming a norm for HR professionals globally, especially when it comes to senior HR positions.

Today, CPHR Canada represents 27,000 members in the Human Resources Profession across nine provinces and three territories in Canada. Established in 1994, CPHR Canada is the national voice on the enhancement and promotion of the HR Profession.

Colin Fortes, President of Ashton College said, “CPHR designation is the gold standard of HR professional certification. It can enhance your career opportunities and earning potential. And since our program is offered online (also in-class), it makes it possible for anyone – as long as they fulfill the admission criteria – to pursue the HR program from anywhere in Canada.”
