Under the December 2015 version of the AHRI and CIPD reciprocity agreement, members who wish to upgrade their membership to a higher level need to do this through their "home institute", which is the institute the member first joined.

This means successful completion of either the AHRI Practising Certification Program or the AHRI Senior Leaders Pathway for certification and the subsequent award of Certified HR Practitioner status by the National Certification Council. Learn more
