In Person

CPHR Manitoba offers a CPHR NKE Preparation Course in partnership with CPHR British Columbia & Yukon

This two-day course is designed to help participants consolidate the knowledge they already have and - more importantly - identify where they need to focus additional studying in order to be successful in completing this multiple-choice assessment. 

Exam writers in Manitoba who participated in the in-person prep course were 23% more likely to pass the November 2017 NKE than the National pass rate.
