CPHR BC & Yukon Resources

CPHR BC & Yukon and CPHR Canada each provide resources to help you prepare for the National Knowledge Exam® (NKE).

CPHR BC & Yukon Prep Course

In this two-day workshop, participants review and discuss important HR theory for each functional dimension in the CPHR Competency Framework. Sample exam questions will be analyzed, enabling participants to identify knowledge gaps. Participants will have an opportunity to practice in a simulated exam setting and discuss techniques for passing. For details on course locations, dates and fees, please refer to CPHR BC & Yukon’s online calendar.

Available exclusively to CPHR BC & Yukon members, the Career Advancement Network (CAN) provides a networking forum for members who are in job transition, actively seeking employment or simply seeking to learn from other HR professionals. There are two separate components to CAN as follows:

CAN Roundtables

The CAN Roundtables (available in select regions) are member-driven monthly meetings, chaired by members in those regions, that create an opportunity to meet, share ideas, learn new strategies and network with other like-minded members in a collaborative and supportive environment.

  • Find out more about CAN Roundtables by searching for them in our Calendar.
