CPHR Knowledge Exam Prep Course (Vancouver)

Date: March 17 — 18, 2022
Location: CPHR BC & Yukon - Boardroom

Program Summary:

This 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 very informative 2 day in-person session*, participants will review important HR theory for each competency area. Sample exam questions and a glossary of terms will be analyzed, enabling participants to identify potential 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 core competencies.
You will learn:
  • The structure and format of the CPHR NKE - components and weightings
  • An overview of the body of knowledge covered by the exam 
  • To apply the knowledge using sample questions and group activities
  • How to design and implement an individualized learning plan
