You may want to consider earning the distinction of APR, Accredited in Public Relations. APR demonstrates to your organization, your boss, your peers and even your mom that you have attained a level of professionalism above many others in the business. It gives you additional credibility as you discuss strategy and tactics with other managers in your organization. You've been there. You've survived the turmoils of the business. You've got the accreditation to prove it. And the Hoosier Chapter of PRSA offers its members free seminars to help you prepare for the exam.
The next round of classes begin Wed., Aug. 25. Classes will run for 10 weeks and be held at the Lilly corporate center in downtown Indianapolis. A syllabus is available for review to help you get acquainted with the schedule.
The enhanced APR exam, introduced by PRSA National in July 2003, is credible and relevant to today's practitioner. It employs current best practices in professional certification testing.
