Ashton College's Human Resources program is also open to anyone without a bachelor’s degree.

Human resources professionals can be considered as the backbone of any organization. 

They work out recruitment strategies, make sure that staff members of all levels fulfill necessary objectives set by the company and remain satisfied and motivated, bringing new positive results. 

In Canada, human resources professionals have an opportunity to affirm their expertise through a designation granted by the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources. Recent changes in the process made it possible for any holder of a bachelor’s degree to receive this designation without having to take the National Knowledge Examination (NKE). 

In order to do that, one simply needs to complete a short academic program offered by Ashton College. 

Ashton offers diverse learning options that are meant to fit even the busiest schedule. Students can attend classes part-time or full-time, and some choose the flexibility of Live Online learning while others prefer to stick to traditional in-class format. 

Ashton's Human Resources program is also open to anyone without a bachelor’s degree. 

By design, it prepares all potential candidates for the National Knowledge Examination, which is the only additional step non-degree students have to take on their route to a CPHR designation. 

So far, Ashton College is the only institution in British Columbia which can turn almost any candidate into a qualified human resources professional in just 12 weeks (prerequisites might apply in individual cases).  

According to the Job Bank, over 40,000 new job openings for human resources professionals are expected in Canada over the period from 2015-2024; this data points to the shortage in the workforce in this field within the same period of time. 

A lot of young professionals will try to contribute to closing this gap.
