AHRI Partnership

AHRI Partnership

An overview of the AHRI IHRP partnership

In November 2018, the Singapore Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP) and the Australian HR Institute (AHRI) signed a mutual recognition agreement, enabling for certified professionals to achieve mutual recognition from both IHRP and AHRI through the respective bridging pathways.

The agreement follows a mapping of the two sets of professional standards and certification criteria ensuring that the equivalent certification levels are matched as follows:

For AHRI Members

  • Certified Member (CPHR) maps to IHRP Certified Professional (IHRP-CP)
  • Certified Fellow (FCPHR) maps to IHRP Senior Professional (IHRP-SP) or IHRP Master Professional (IHRP-MP)**

For IHRP Certified Professionals*

  • IHRP Certified Professional (IHRP-CP) maps to Certified Member (CPHR)
  • IHRP Senior Professional (IHRP-SP) maps to Certified Member (CPHR) or Certified Fellow (FCPHR)
  • IHRP Master Professional (IHRP-MP) maps to Chartered (FCPHR)

*Subject to bridging requirements.

**HR professionals who are senior/C-level HR leaders, well-regarded by the HR community and have actively contributed back to the HR industry, will be invited to apply for the IHRP-MP by the IHRP.

As part of the application process members will need to provide proof of their current professional membership and a curriculum vitae. Once the appropriate bridging requirements have been met, certification will be awarded by the other body, with the right to use the appropriate post-nominal letters of both associations.

Prior to commencing the appropriate bridging process, IHRP certified professionals will need to become a member of the Australian HR Institute. Upon successful completion of the relevant bridging process, you will be awarded either Certified Practitioner HR (CPHR) or Fellow Certified Practitioner (FCPHR).
