Entry Requirements

Students admitted into this program must have a minimum of a two-year diploma from a recognized post secondary institution, or equivalent. International students from a non English speaking country will be required to provide proof of a 6.0 IELTS or 80 IBT TOEFL result.

There will be three intakes a year. Courses are spread over four semesters, allowing students to engage in practicum/capstone projects while also offering working students a more manageable course load, meeting the academic needs of Canadian and International students.

Criminal Record Check

Students who qualify for a practicum may need to show proof of a clear criminal record check to their practicum host organization before the practicum begins. If there are any expenses associated with obtaining this criminal record check, it will be the responsibility of the student. A search which identifies relevant criminal convictions may prevent students from entering into a practicum placement, and may also impact job prospects in the field of Human Resources Management upon completion of the program.

Graduation requirements

In order to receive the Diploma, students must pass each course with a minimum B- grade (68%) or higher. Students must complete all program requirements towards the PDHRM credential within six calendar years from the time of initial registration, including transfer credits.


Students who meet all graduation requirements will receive a Post-Diploma in Human Resources Management.

Note: This program is accredited by CPHR BC & Yukon, and graduates may be eligible to have the National Knowledge Exam (NKE) requirement waived. There may be different or additional requirements in terms of GPA and program completion timelines in order to qualify for a NKE Waiver. For more information about CPHR BC & Yukon's requirements for the NKE Waiver or the CPHR designation, please see Charted Professionals in Human Resources website.
