MMSU posts 100% rating anew in CHRA exam

The MMSU College of Business, Economics, and Accountancy (CBEA) posted a whopping 100 percent passing rate anew in the 2021 Certified Human Resource Association (CHRA) assessment examination, with one of its graduates as a topnotcher. 


Ms. Krismary Sharmaine D. Yapo, now an instructor of the College, landed 9th place in the exam with a rating of 89.63%. Other passers include Ms. Janela Ruth Claudine S. Andres, Ms. Alyza Jeanelle A. Baltazar, Ms. Vanessa F. Calube, Ms. Joe Shantel B. Pagdilao and Ms. Shaira Vae B. Quitang. 


These graduates are all first-time examinees. They are among the 82 passers who produced 94.25% overall passing rate for this year’s eighth batch. 


The College also exhibited the same performance last year when 10 graduates passed and 3 of them made it to the roster of top passers. 


This year’s CHRA test was virtually administered by the Human Resource Educators’ Association of the Philippines, Inc. (HREAP) last January 23.


The CHRA is a qualifying test to take advanced the HREAP’s certification programs. This four-hour examination was divided into two sets: Set 1, which covers recruitment and selection, workplace learning and development, compensation & benefits, and performance management, job analysis and design, and risk management; and Set 2, which composes labor and HR related laws.


Qualified to take the exam are graduates and graduating students of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Human Resource Management (BSBA-HRM). Others can also take the exam provided that they have one year HR-related experience. 


The HREAP is a professional membership organization of human resource educators in the country that focuses on the development of human resource programs, academe-industry collaboration, research publication, and learning and development. (StratCom)
