In August 2013 we signed a mutual recognition of professional membership agreement with the Australian HR Institute (AHRI). So if you’re a CIPD professional member, you can become a professional member of AHRI. And if you’re an AHRI professional member, you can become a professional member of the CIPD.

From August 2018, this mutual recognition has also been extended to Academic membership. So if you hold CIPD Academic membership, you can gain Academic membership of AHRI. And if you hold AHRI Academic membership, you can gain Academic membership of the CIPD.

As part of the agreement you’ll also have full access to both CIPD and AHRI exclusive member benefits.

Please take a look below to see how the membership grades are matched:

  • If you’re an Associate Member (Assoc CIPD) your grade of membership is equivalent to a Professional Member of AHRI (MAHRI)
  • If you’re a Chartered Member (Chartered MCIPD) your grade of membership is equivalent to a Certified Practitioner Human Resources (CPHR)
  • If you’re a Chartered Fellow (Chartered FCIPD) your grade of membership is equivalent to a Fellow Certified Practitioner Human Resources (FCPHR)
  • If you are an Academic Associate (Academic Assoc CIPD) your grade of Academic membership is equivalent to Academic Member (AMARI)
  • If you are an Academic Member (Academic MCIPD) your grade of Academic membership is equivalent to Certified Academic HR (CAHR)
  • If you are an Academic Fellow (Academic FCIPD) your grade of Academic membership is equivalent to Fellow Certified Academic HR (FCAHR)
