Our History


Our History

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 Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM), the Professional Body for HR Practitioners in Kenya. It 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 required knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to deliver HR services at various hierarchical levels of the organization.  From the feedback we have been receiving from employing organizations and other stakeholders, our graduates have been found suitable in 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. Some of our graduates are offering HR training and consultancy services as independent consultants to meet the rising demand for such services.

Located in the Nairobi Central Business District – Ufundi Co-op Plaza, 3rd & 4th Floor, Moi Avenue, Nairobi – our college offers courses right from the certificate level to a first degree in the area of Human Resource Management (HRM).

Other than HRM courses, CHRM is an accredited ICDL training and testing centre with fully equipped Computer Labs and a ICDL Testing facility.We are also an Accredited training center by both KASNEB and KISM (Kenya Institute of Supplies Management) to offer their programs,namely Certified Secretaries-K and Certified Procurement and Supplies Professional-K.

Other than being accredited by the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA/PRIVATE/TVC/0041/2015), we have also been accredited as a Training Provider by National Industrial and Training Authority (NITA/TRN/996) to offer Executive Courses and short training courses.

At present about 800 students are studying at our college. We are continuously providing quality HR professional education to produce competitive HR professionals that can work anywhere in the global market.
