Regional Accreditation

How do we work with more local agencies?

Here at AIHR, we do our best to meet your needs! If you do not see your agency listed below, contact our support team to find out how we can work with your local accreditation agency.


The Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) protects the public interest by governing and regulating the professional practice of its more than ​​​​​24,000​ member registrants in Canada.

AIHR is pre-approved for HRPA members to receive development credits. 

A key requirement of every HRPA designation is a commitment to continued professional development by enhancing professional capability and keeping knowledge relevant. At the AIHR Academy, we share this passion for life-long learning.



The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) champions better work and working lives by setting professional standards for HR and people development, as well as driving positive change in the world of work. CIPD is the career partner of choice for more than 150,000 members around the world.

AIHR is NOT an official partner with CIPD.

However, to obtain a designation, HR Professionals need to be approved on different assessments divided by Unit Summaries (Unit Summaries are the different roles/activities HR professionals are responsible for).

To be successfully approved in one Unit, they need to do well on their assessment and also provide proof of a certain number of study hours (usually, it's required a combination of 20 hours provided by an accredited institution, which we're not, and an additional 20 hours of self-directed learning activities in order to prepare for the assessment).

So, although we're not an approved provider, CIPD members can still use our courses to better prepare for the different assessments and use it as a self-directed learning activity (which does not need to associate with an approved provider).
