APC Program fees and dates

Supporting your APC journey

The AHRI Board has committed to subsidising APC enrolment fees into 2019 to encourage and support AHRI members to commence their HR certification journey. The subsidised offer for eligible candidates undertaking the APC Program by distance study is now $495 per unit (previously $1,550) and workshop delivery is now $995 per unit (previously $2,050).

Once you have taken up the offer for one APC unit, all your subsequent units will be locked into the subsidised price. This subsidy cannot be offered indefinitely so make the most of this opportunity by enrolling now.

As of 1 January 2020, there will be a change to the subsidised rates for the Program. Take advantage of the current subsidies and start your certification journey today.


APC unit fees

The APC Program comprises of four learning units. The fees for each unit vary depending on the delivery method you select – either distance or workshop.
