The Management Certificate Program (MCP) in Human Resources is a professional non-credit program approved by the Senate of Carleton University. Its courses are recognized by the Human Resources Professional Association of Ontario.

Participants will be able to achieve all nine credits required to write the national knowledge-based examination (NKE) that take place in September and May of each year. Courses run on Saturdays (8:30am-4:30pm) from September to June with a new course each month. Please refer to the HRPA website to ensure that you meet the additional requirements to write the NKE:

Classes are small, enabling a lively exchange. Courses are facilitated by experts who have not only achieved professional designations in their specialization, but also the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. Participants share knowledge and experiences through group discussions, case study analysis, and interactive presentations.

Participants in MCP also receive Carleton library privileges during the semester of enrollment.

All courses in the Management Certificate in Human Resources Program are offered on an open enrollment basis. We highly recommend registration well in advance of the start date of each course as they often reach capacity very quickly.

*Depending on deliverables, some courses will have an exam out of scheduled class time.
