Professional designations

The Human Resources Management diploma curriculum has been developed to help students prepare for the requirements of the Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation administered by the Human Resources Institute of Alberta.

Courses in the program are also recognized by other professional bodies, including the International Personnel Management Association (IPMA-Canada) and the Canadian Payroll Association.


Transfer credit

All courses completed for the Human Resources Management certificate and diploma programs are credit courses and may be transferable individually toward further study at other Alberta institutions. For current, detailed information on individual course and diploma transferability, refer to the Online Alberta Transfer Guide or contact the receiving institution directly.
