APR (Accredited in Public Relations) is a mark of distinction for public relations professionals.
Portland Metro Chapter’s APR prep course offered to candidates at no charge
Earning the APR credential proves that you have successfully demonstrated the knowledge, skills and abilities to practice public relations effectively in today’s complex communications environment.
A group APR preparation course, facilitated by accredited volunteer coaches, is offered each year at no charge by the Portland Metro Chapter. The APR preparation course for spring 2013 has been completed. Depending upon the level of interest, the next course will be offered either this fall or in the spring of 2014. The course runs for approximately eight weeks, usually held on Saturday mornings.
In addition, individual members who wish to study for the APR examination on their own can request to be matched with an accredited chapter member who will serve as a mentor and coach.
To learn more about the APR process and the preparation course, please contact Director-at-Large Chuck Williams, APR, at 503-804-4713 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
