CPHR Accreditation Program

At CPHR Manitoba we are committed to building the strategic capability and organizational impact of HR practitioners, and providing value to our members. 

To further support the Continued Professional Development (CPD) needs of our growing population of Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHRs), and in recognition of the quality of some of the HR professional development programs offered throughout Manitoba, we are proud to offer the CPHR Accreditation Program.

What is the CPHR Accreditation Program?

This program provides organizations that deliver HR and strategic business programming the ability to guarantee CPHR Continued Professional Development (CPD) Hours for participants who enrol in their program(s). Eligible professional development programs must be directly in line with the Functional Knowledge Areas and have an established set of standards for quality and consistency in program delivery.

Attaching the Accreditation Seal to your instructional program marketing materials communicates that your program has been reviewed and approved to guarantee CPHR CPD Hours. 

Once your program has been approved, you will pay a yearly fee for a licence and the right to use the Accreditation Seal. Licences are granted for one year and require completion of an annual renewal form.

What are the benefits to participating providers?

You've probably been asked if your professional development programs are eligible for CPHR CPD Hours. Receiving accredited status for your program(s) will allow you to:

  • guarantee CPHR CPD Hours
  • receive recognition in CPHR Manitoba's marketing of the program (web calendar of upcoming Accredited Partner Events, weekly newsletter calendar of upcoming Accredited Partner events & monthly email listing of upcoming Accredited Partner events sent to the entire CPHR Manitoba membership)
  • enhance your marketing to a growing group of CPHR designation holders (currently over 600 in Manitoba)
  • increase recognition for the quality of your offering


Calendar of Accredited Partner Events

Our Accredited Partners will be able to list their courses on a special Calendar of Partner Events page, so please check back often to see what's on offer. We will also share with you upcoming Accredited Partner events through an email once per month.

Accredited partners are responsible for sending dates of upcoming programs to be included in our marketing efforts. 

Accredited programs will have the privilege to further promote their instructional program for a discounted rate of 20% off of the regular fees for a dedicated e-blast. Contact laura@cphrmb.ca for more details. 

After participating in an Accredited program, members will be provided with an 'Event Identification Number' from the course provider, which they can use when completing their CPD log to guarantee those hours will count toward their professional development.
