For PR and communications practitioners with 5 or more years of experience, the CPRS Accredited in Public Relations (APR®) designation program is the most valuable, in-depth professional development experience that you will have in your public relations and management career. Achieving the APR will set you apart, professionally, and reputationally and bring meaningful growth to you, as a person.

Thinking you’re maybe ready but still not sure you can do it? Let’s figure this out, together. This informative webinar session will provide you program details, and help you get your application submission ready before the deadline on December 1st.

The webinar features Q&A with APR graduates on their experience with the accreditation program process, what worked and didn’t for them, their recommendations for success and other things to consider. Also hear from members of the Accreditation Council who will provide details on the application process, the year-long accreditation journey and an exam overview.
