As an AHRI professional member or Certified HR Practitioner, you have made a commitment to modelling excellence in the workplace by continuing to develop your skills and knowledge and applying them at work. Your continuing professional development will not only benefit your organisation, it will enhance your career opportunities.
AHRI Certified HR Practitioners (CPHR and FCPHR), Certified HR Academics (CAHR and FCAHR) and professional members (MAHRI, AMAHRI, CAHRI and FAHRI) must complete the required minimum hours of CPD every three years to maintain their HR certification status or professional membership.
AHRI offers professional development programs and events that are current, relevant and developed especially for HR and people management professionals. Whether you learn best by reading, listening or doing, AHRI has you covered.
CPD points gained from attending AHRI events are automatically recorded. AHRI members who register for AHRI events/forums on or before the registration closing date will have their CPD record updated automatically. Records will be updated at the completion of the event/forum once your attendance has been confirmed. Please allow up to 60 days for your record to be updated.
If you are missing CPD hours it may be due to one of these reasons:
You registered after the registration closing date:
AHRI members who register after the registration closing date are responsible for updating their own CPD record manually
You did not attend/you attended in place of another member:
AHRI members who have registered for an AHRI event/forum but are unable to attend are responsible for notifying AHRI of non-attendance/substitution. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Use AHRI's online CPD recording tool (accessed via your member profile) to manage and track your professional development. It automatically records AHRI activities and events you have attended; however you will need to record any non-AHRI professional development activities to ensure an accurate record.
All AHRI Certified HR Practitioners and a random sample of professional members will be audited annually for CPD; you may be asked to provide evidence/records of your CPD activities for the past three years.
Evidence sources for your CPD must be objective and serviceable, and can include copies of formal qualifications, attendance statements, copies of articles written, presentations given, or payment receipts from conferences.
It is a good idea to keep your own file at home with evidence of your completed CPD activities.
Professional members who do not meet their CPD obligations may be re-graded to MAHRI or Affiliate membership. Regrading considerations of that type are made on a case-by-case basis.
Certified Practitioners (CPHR and FCPHR) and Certified Academics (FCAHR and CAHR) may lose their certified status in the instance that they do not meet the CPD requirements for their membership level.
A review panel will enable non-compliant members to be reviewed by other HR professionals that are sensitive to the needs of practising professional members. An appeal process will be available to members in the event that AHRI determines they have not met their CPD obligations.
