About College of Human Resource Management

The College of Human Resource Management (CHRM), formerly, IHRM College, is a leading middle-level academic institution in Kenya and was established in 1997 as the training arm of the Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM).

The College faculty is composed of both academicians and HR practitioners who blend the theory and practice of HR to enable students to appreciate the relationship between HR concepts and the realities at the workplace. Most members of the faculty hold master's degrees and about four (4) with PhDs and a number of others pursuing their PhDs. CHRM is proud of the contribution that the faculty has made towards ensuring that the College achieves outstanding best results in the KNEC and HRMPEB examinable programs in HR in the last few years. 

CHRM Vision: To be a Centre of  Excellence in Leadership Development, Research, Innovation, and Training.

CHRM Mission: To provide quality academic and professional training, promoting excellence in research and integrating learning and innovation.

CHRM is located in the Nairobi Central Business District (Campuses on the Ufundi Coop Plaza, 1st, 3rd & 4th Floors, and 3rd floor of Caxton House).

College of Human Resource Management (CHRM) offers courses from Certificate, Diploma, Higher Diploma levels as well as Certified Professional programs in both HR Management and other Business Management related programs. These are examined and certified externally both locally and internationally by Examination Bodies like HRMPEB, KNEC, KASNEB, KISM, CIC-UK, and most recently the security programs by CDACC. 

The College offers flexible study modes to meet all the student's needs at their convenience. Some classes are on a full-time basis while others are on a part-time. Part-time study options include sunrise (6:30am - 8:00am) class, lunch hour, evenings (5:30pm - 8:00pm) and Saturdays only classes.

Another mode of study is distance learning whereby students are provided with learning resources to read at their own convenience.

Whichever mode of study the students select, they are expected to take both external and internal examinations to test their mastery of the knowledge and skills acquired.

The flexible approach to the transfer of knowledge has enabled CHRM to produce professionally qualified HR professionals who are providing required HR services to meet the needs of employing organizations.

Why study at College of Human Resource Management

CHRM is committed to developing the human resource required for the management of people at the workplace, in both the public and private sectors of the economy. Hence, our courses aim at preparing and equipping students with the required knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be able to deliver HR services at various hierarchical levels of the organization. 

CHRM graduates have been found suitable for carrying out a wide range of strategic and operational activities in the human resource (HR) function. It is therefore not surprising that a good number of the graduates hold senior positions in the industry and the public service. Others are offering HR training and consultancy services as independent consultants to meet the rising demand for such services.

Other than HRM courses, CHRM is an accredited ICDL training and testing center with fully equipped Computer Labs and an ICDL Testing facility. It was also recently accredited (2019) by the Institute of Certified Safety and Security Professionals of Kenya (ICSSPK) to offer the TVET-CDACC Safety and Security programs. CHRM is also an Accredited training center by both KASNEB and KISM (Kenya Institute of Supplies Management) to offer their business-related programs.
