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 BC & Yukon, we are proud to offer pre-approval for CPD hours.
CPHR BC & Yukon has a pre-approval program for learning institutions and training organizations that offer on-going continuing professional development for HR professionals.
Recognized courses are pre-approved for CPD hours but must meet CPHR BC & Yukon standards.
Only events offered directly by CPHR BC & Yukon or events pre-approved by CPHR BC & Yukon can guarantee CPHR CPD hours in British Columbia. CPHR members – if you see the CPHR BC & Yukon Endorsement Seal on event advertisements you know that the event is guaranteed to provide you with CPHR CPD hours.
Benefits of being pre-approved for CPD
This program provides organizations that deliver HR and strategic business programming the ability to guarantee CPHR Continued Professional Development (CPD) hours for participants who enroll in their program(s). To qualify, educational events and programming must be aligned with the CPHR Competency Framework Areas and have an established set of standards for quality and consistency in program delivery.

Whether it is in the public sector, academia or private industry, conducting fair and thorough investigations is becoming increasingly important. Whatever the field, if fact-finding is not done properly or the investigative process is – or is perceived to be – unfair, the consequences can be calamitous, leaving the organization conducting the investigation exposed, with its credibility and reputation in tatters. Botched investigations – especially botched workplace related investigations – inevitably cost time, money and disruption. The Workplace Institute offers top-quality investigative courses and consulting delivered by experts. They are custom crafted to provide practical, case-based training for anyone involved in conducting investigations of any type, big or small.
