CHRP Employment Law Exam & CHRL Employment Law Exam

HRPA’s exams are currently delivered by Prometric via computer-based testing and this partnership was expanded in August 2020 to include online delivery through a secure remote proctoring system – ProProctor. As the situation with COVID-19 remains fluid, HRPA will continue with the dual-modality delivery model until the end of 2021. If you are planning to write either the CHRP Employment Law Exam (CHRP-ELE) or the CHRL Employment Law Exam (CHRL-ELE), you have the choice of writing the exam remotely via an online delivery module, or – if you prefer and test centres in your area are open – in person. New: HRPA will be introducing structural changes to the CHRP and CHRL Employment Law Exams for 2021. What this means is that the Employment Law Exams will be divided into 2 content sections. The structural changes are as follows: CHRP Employment Law Exam (CHRP -ELE)CHRL Employment Law Exam (CHRL -ELE)Exam Content Section 1: 1 hour and 45 minsExam Content Section 1: 1 hour and 45 mins1 optional 15 min break1 optional 15 min breakExam Content Section 2: 1 hour and 45 minsExam Content Section 2: 1 hour and 45 minsTotal: 3.5 hours to complete 110 questionsTotal: 3.5 hours to complete 110 questionsBreaks: You will be permitted one 15 - minute optional break which we encourage you to take after you have completed and submitted Exam Section 1 and before you start Exam Section 2. Breaks are not permitted during Exam Section 1 or Exam Section 2. Please note: There are no changes to content, format, method of delivery, level of difficulty or the eligibility requirements. Registration for the CHRP or CHRL Employment Law Exam involves a simple three-step process:

  1. Establish your eligibility with HRPA; eligibility means being an active registrant who is approved for the Public Register and who has past either the CHRP Knowledge Exam or the CHRL Knowledge Exam (*If you have not met the eligibility requirement you will not be permitted to register for the exam)

  2. Register and make payment for the exam with HRPA.

  3. Schedule your date, time and location directly on Prometric’s website. You will be given the option of either scheduling your exam at a test centre or through remote proctoring.

NOTE: Register early to ensure you obtain a seat in your preferred city/location or your preferred time if you are testing remotely. 2020 & 2021 Employment Law Exam Schedule ExamRegistrationRegistration DeadlineWithdrawal DeadlineExam Testing WindowCHRP Employment Law ExamCLOSED​January 4, 2021​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​January 4–18, 2021​​CHRL Employment Law ExamCLOSED​January 11, 2021​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​January 11–25, 2021​​CHRP Employment Law Exam​Registration opens as of Feb 1, 2020​May 17, 2021​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​​May 17–June 8, 2021CHRL Employment Law ExamRegistration opens as of Feb 15, 2020May 25, 2021​​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​May 25–June 8, 2021​​CHRP Employment Law ExamRegistration opens as of July 1, 2020​September 14, 2021​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​September 14–28, 2021CHRL Employment Law ExamRegistration opens as of July 15, 2020September 21, 2021​​29–two calendar days from exam appointment date​​​September 21–October 5, 2021Exam Content and Delivery The CHRP/CHRL Employment Law Exam will consist of 110 questions, 8-12 of which are test questions that will not count toward your final score.

Reasonable accommodation refers to any adjustment to the examination materials or testing environment that permits a qualified applicant with a disability to perform without undue hardship to the institution providing accommodation. Documented disabilities are those for which there is a diagnosis by a qualified professional.​ The purpose of accommodations is to provide equity, not advantage. Any requested modification that would substantially alter essential elements of the examination will not be granted. To request accommodations for your examination, please complete the ‘Examination Accommodations Request Form‘ and submit it to exams@hrpa.ca for review.
