STEP 1:  Complete Pre-requisite Training

First year HR Compliance Certification School students are required to complete pre-requisite training before attending the school. Pre-requisite training is included in the school registration price and is delivered online. Approximately 60 days prior to the school, students will receive access to pre-requisite training, including additional instructions on how to prepare for the school. Pre-requisite content is the focus of the CUHRCP exam. Students receive a study guide with the pre-requisite content that they can use to study for the exam prior to arriving at the school.

STEP 2:  Attend an Exam Study Session and Take the CUHRCP Exam. Date to be announced.   

Students will participate in the CUHRCP group exam. Students are tested on what they learned during pre-requisite training only. The exam will be delivered and administered on July 24 in Denver, CO by Proctor U.

The exam is a proctored, closed-book, multiple choice exam.  Students will have two hours to complete the exam. Students who earn 70% or better on the CUHRCP exam, and have completed pre-requisite and classroom training, will earn the Credit Union HR Compliance Professional (CUHRCP) certification.
