The Validation of Professional Experience (VPE) Assessment is a formal step in earning the CPHR designation. On your journey to becoming designated, you must demonstrate three or more years of professional experience in human resources with reference to your selected path to becoming designated – click here to view the five paths.

The type(s) of experiences you log must be at the professional level, using technical HR knowledge with a level of authority, and can be from any sector of the economy - industry, government, public practice, professional associations, education, healthcare, or not-for-profits - that has a human resources function.

Once we’ve received and reviewed your VPE submission, you’ll receive a letter from us either confirming that you’ve passed and met all the requirements or a report card that tells you where your experience is right now and provides you with insight into what further experience(s) you need.

Your submission must:

  • demonstrate that it meets at least nine (9) of the 44 competencies;
  • demonstrate that the experience covers three (3) of the five (5) enabling competencies; and
  • cover breadth in at least two (2) of the nine (9) functional areas or demonstrate complete proficiency in one (1) functional knowledge area.

Our next VPE submission deadline is March 15, 2019 and we’re offering a 50% off discount on your submission fee of $150 (you’ll save $75!).
