Registered Professional Recruiter Accreditation Program
Recruiting and hiring today takes place in a rigorous economic and legal environment. The ability to identify, attract, hire and manage talented people can mean success or failure for any organization and yet most companies face these organizational concerns every day without a proper process in place.

The Professional Recruiter Accreditation Program consists of three modules that teach recruiters and hiring managers how to reduce recruitment costs, lower the risk of erroneous hiring decisions and avoid needless litigation.

Successful completion of all 3 modules of this program makes you eligible for membership in the Association of Professional Recruiters of Canada (APRC), with the RPR (Registered Professional Recruiter) designation. The Institute is a certified educational body registered with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), and offers nationally recognized accreditation programs.
