April is Accreditation Month!

If you've noticed the tag APR after some of your professors titles and don't know what it stands for, it means Accredited in Public Relations. Some of my professors are accredited and they said it's a good thing to have because it puts you a step ahead of other PR professionals.

In yesterday's edition of PRSA Issues and Trends, there was an article about the benefits of becoming APR. "APR is a voluntary certification program of PR professionals." One of my former professors said that it's an extensive two-day long examination that tests your knowledge of PR. One day is an objective portion and another day is a written test that requires you to think strategically and tactically about public relations. Read the complete article here.

Are any of our readers APR? If so, please comment and share your thoughts on it!
