The distinction of earning your APR provides instant credibility in a practitioner’s abilities and commitment to their craft for colleagues, clients, potential clients and other professionals. The process of preparing for the examination allows the candidate to review the basic foundations of Public Relations, and gain additional insight new ways as they relate principles back to various experiences throughout their career.

The distinction of Accreditation is a mark of professionalism and knowledge in the field of PR that cannot be displayed in any equivalent way.

I would encourage colleagues to pursue Accreditation because I believe the entire process is an authentic learning experience that opens the door for a candidate to further their career through professional development and networking with other candidates and APRs with lifelong benefits.
