Although the CPRS welcomes all participants who wish to write the Public Relations Knowledge (PRK)® exam, it should be kept in mind that the exam has been prepared for those who have completed some level of public relations or communications education and is designed to test a participant’s knowledge in the specific field of public relations and communications. While completion of a certificate or degree in the area of public relations or communications is not required, it is strongly recommended; alternatively, a participant may have acquired direct experience and undertaken self-directed studies in the area.
