Cancelled - CPHR National Knowledge Exam Prep Course (Virtual Classroom)

Date: August 18 — 20, 2021
Location: Online

Program Summary:

This recently revised and improved CPHR BC & Yukon prep course is designed to give our members a more thorough understanding of what they will need to know in order to be successful when writing the CPHR National Knowledge Exam* (NKE).

During this facilitator-led three-day online course, participants will review and discuss important HR theory for each competency area. Sample exam questions and a glossary of terms for each competency area will be analyzed, enabling participants to identify knowledge gaps. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss techniques for passing. The goal of this course is to equip students with the tools and knowledge needed to prepare effectively for the NKE.

Take the prep course well in advance of your exam date to give yourself ample time to fill in gaps in your knowledge in the seven core competencies.

As of January 2021, there is a new coursework requirement for anyone who wishes to write the National Knowledge Exam (NKE).
