Accreditation in Public Relations (APR)

The Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) credential certifies your drive, professionalism, and principles, setting you apart from your peers and positioning you as a leader and mentor in the competitive public relations field. Accreditation is attained by successfully completing both a readiness review conducted by a panel of three peers and a computer-based examination.

The practitioner must demonstrate a general knowledge of the broad field of public relations, and must have a comprehensive understanding of his or her concentration within the field. A member who achieves “Accredited in Public Relations,” or APR, has earned the highest status available to anyone in the public relations profession.

Those individuals listed as “Fellow PRSA” have achieved the APR status, in addition to being nominated and accepted into the PRSA College of Fellows in recognition of contributions to the profession and the community after 20 years of experience in public relations.
