  • It is a mark of your professionalism and commitment to best practice.
  • It inspires confidence in employers, clients and peers.
  • It enhances your career prospects and earning potential.
  • It allows you to use letters after your name (Assoc CIPD, Chartered MCIPD or Chartered FCIPD).

Most CIPD members are professional members or are working towards professional membership. You can become a professional member by studying a CIPD qualification and upgrading or by doing Experience Assessment.
