Few things in the HR community garner as much attention as the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation.

Stories we write about it are among the top ones viewed on Canadian HR Reporter’s website. Surveys we conduct about the designation invariably draw the most responses. There’s only one conclusion to be drawn from that: HR practitioners care very deeply about their designation, and have strong opinions on the subject.

The decision by Ontario’s HR association to drop the National Professional Practice Assessment (NPPA) exam is significant, to say the least. (For full details of what the Human Resources Professional Association is doing, see “HRPA phasing out CHRP experience exam.”)
