Interested in earning your Accreditation, but don’t know how to start? Established in 1964, the Accreditation Program is the profession’s only national post-graduate certification program. The APR credential is a sign of commitment and expertise in the profession of public relations. It measures a public relations practitioner’s fundamental knowledge of communications theory and its application; establishes advanced capabilities in research, strategic planning, implementation and evaluation; and demonstrates a commitment to professional excellence and ethical conduct.
If you are interested in being a part of an accreditation preparation group, contact chapter President Debra Bethard-Caplick, at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on the 2012 study group forming after the first of the year.
