CHPA Sponsorship


Have you ever considered obtaining your CHPA? We might be able to help! Your Alberta Chapter IAHSS committee is proud to be sponsoring up to 5 applicants and provide financial support for the successful candidates.


Who can apply?

In order to apply for CHPA sponsorship, you must be a member in good standing with IAHSS in the province of Alberta and have been accepted as a CHPA candidate by IAHSS. Details for CHPA qualification can be found here.


Application process

If you feel you meet these requirements and would like to be considered, please email the Alberta Chapter Chair, Ed Colbourne at and submit a short paragraph about why you feel this designation would benefit yourself both personally and professionally. Candidates will be approved on a first come, first served basis. Once a candidate has been approved by IAHSS Alberta as a sponsorship candidate, they will have twelve (12) months to obtain their CHPA designation. If the applicant does not meet these requirements within the allotted time, they will no longer be considered for reimbursement.

How can I write the Exam?

Once you've become an CHPA candidate and have studied the exam content, you're ready to write! The exam must be completed in the presence of a proctor. There a several requirements that must be met in order to become a proctor for the purposes of the CHPA exam. The candidate is responsible for making these arrangements. Proctor Guidelines can be found here


Terms and conditions
