Internationally recognized, the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) integrates timeless communications principles with contemporary strategies and tactics.

What can APR do for you?
“I pursued the APR because I wanted to strengthen my knowledge of communications theory, ethics and crisis communications so that I could be more effective in my position as the communications director for a public school district. Having a base of knowledge and familiarity with public relations best practices gives me confidence that my advice is sound, and provides me with concrete evidence to back up my recommendations.” — Naomi Sigler Hunter, APR
