Accreditation in Public Relations


Accreditation in Public Relations is a way for public relations professionals to demonstrate their mastery of strategic communications with accreditation or a certificate developed by PRSA and the Universal Accreditation Board. The 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. Building on the foundation of your educational degree, the APR keeps you current on today’s best practices and applications in the ever-evolving communications world.
