If you are an MCIPR or FCIPR grade member and have started logging CIPR CPD, you can apply to become a Chartered PR Practitioner.

We will need evidence of your commitment to life-long learning, which can include CIPR CPD, CIPR Qualifications/Training, or other evidence of recent professional development in public relations.

If you have not completed CIPR CPD or a CIPR Qualification/Training, evidence of continuing professional development will be considered. This could include copies of certificates, a record of completing CPD under another scheme or proof of undertaken training.


We assess your skills, knowledge and experience in leadership, strategy and ethics. We recommend that you contact the CIPR to discuss the most appropriate time for you undertake an assessment, if you are in any doubt.
