What is an AHRI Fellow (FAHRI)?
AHRI Fellowship is a level of professional membership which recognises HR professionals who have made a substantial contribution to and have a record of achievement in the practice of HR and will continue to contribute to the profession. Fellows are committed AHRI members who may use the post-nominal FAHRI.
As an AHRI Fellow, you have full access to exclusive HR resources and discounts on training and events, and you are covered by AHRI ProCover professional indemnity insurance.
AHRI Fellows are also eligible to achieve HR certification through the Senior Leaders Pathway or another certification pathway, to become Certified AHRI Fellows (FCPHR).
The criteria for Fellowship are aligned to the Professional Recognition Framework, which is underpinned by the AHRI Model of Excellence.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
AHRI professional members, Certified HR Practitioners and Certified HR Academics are required to undertake continuing professional development (CPD) to maintain their HR certification and AHRI professional membership.
By taking up AHRI's professional development opportunities and events, you can stay ahead of the latest HR trends and research while keeping your HR skills and knowledge up to date. These activities earn you CPD points along the way.
Undertaking CPD provides assurance to employers and stakeholders of an HR practitioner's contemporary skills and behaviour.
CPD Points required (Over a three-year period): 30 Hours, specifically relating to advancing the HR profession.
Types of CPD-eligible activities:
Type 3 – Conferences and seminars
Type 4 – Presentation of papers
Type 5 – Industry involvement
Type 6 – Service to the Profession
A random sample of 10% of all FAHRI members will be audited on an annual basis. All FCPHR members will be audited at least once every three years as part of the commitment to maintaining certification standards.
