Accreditation in Public Relations is the profession’s only national post-graduate certification. For most, the process of achieving it is a career game-changer. It's not about what you've done but about learning and applying learning to your role as a top-tier professional.
The Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) involves: 1) study, 2) assessments including a peer review of your ability to apply the profession's state of the art framework to your experience (We help you through the no-cost mentor program), AND a computer-based examination where you apply your knowledge to a variety of scenarios.
We begin the accreditation process through a half-day overview course called Jumpstart. Taught by seasoned APRs, we focus on the core knowledge, skills and abilities framework to be applied to the panel peer-review presentation and the computer-based examination.
