Human Resources Learning and Development Post-Graduate Diploma

Program Overview

The Human Resources Learning and Development (HRLD) Post-Graduate Diploma program provides you with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience for a successful career in the human resources learning and development field.

These concepts are then expanded to include knowledge and skills specific to adult learning and development, preparing you for a broad array of careers in human resources, learning, training, and talent development.

For real-world application of learning, students also participate in a work integrated learning project during the program with a MITT industry partner.

After graduation, students can pursue two industry recognized professional designations to further their professional profiles with industry-specific competencies, access networking and professional development opportunities, and pathways to career advancement.

Work Integrated Learning

HRLD pairs students with a MITT industry partner to propose, plan and execute a project that contributes to a learning and development need within the organization. Students will integrate their classroom learning with real-world experience and develop a meaningful and beneficial product to implement within the workplace.

Professional Designation Opportunities

MITT’s HRLD program is unique in that it offers two nationally recognized professional designation opportunities for graduates:

  1. Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation is the national industry standard of excellence for those working in the field of HR, requiring an individual to achieve and maintain demonstrated competency and experience relevant to the HR profession.

    Graduates who attain a 70% cumulative average are eligible to waive writing the CPHR’s National Knowledge Exam (NKE). Students will have five years to apply for the designation by completing the experience requirements, submitting NKE waiver forms and fees, and maintaining their CPHR membership. Refer here for more details.
  2. Institute for performance and learning - sealThe Institute for Performance and Learning (I4PL) is the only Canadian workplace performance and learning association that offers certification. I4PL’s Certified Training and Development Professional (CTDP) certification provides candidates with industry recognition of sought-after training and development skills.

    Graduates of the PG HRLD Program will receive credit for one year of pre-qualification experience towards I4PL’s Certified Training and Development Professional (CTDP) certification. Graduates will need 3 years of full-time experience in the field of learning and development alongside their PG HRLD certificate in order to be pre-qualified for CTDP Certification. After completing the pre-qualification process, graduates may begin their CTDP Candidacy period wherein they will have 12 months to take the CTDP exam and submit their CTDP skill demonstration. After completing these steps, graduates will achieve the sought-after CTDP designation. Refer to the I4PL for certification details.
