What is accreditation? Will it help your career? Find out at this FREE virtual event and get your CPRS accreditation started.

The Canadian Public Relations Society has different levels of accreditation and certification – for every stage in your career. Professional accreditation and certification can provide you with numerous benefits, including

  • Establishing who you are in the public relations and communications industry
  • Demonstrating your commitment to the industry
  • Giving you concrete proof of your abilities through established professional credentials
  • Differentiating you from others in the industry

What levels of accreditation and certification are there?

For new practitioners, CPRS has the Public Relations Knowledge (PRK) exam. This certification is for anyone new to the industry. If you have one to five years of professional experience under your belt, the PRK gives you tangible proof of industry knowledge.

For mid-career practitioners, CPRS has the Accredited in Public Relations (APR) designation. For more than fifty years, the APR has been a respected measure of professional experience and competence in the field of public relations. Showcase your commitment and expertise with an APR designation. The deadline to apply for the APR process in 2022 is fast approaching on December 1! If you’re interested in differentiating yourself and showcasing your expertise, this is the perfect opportunity to find out more about how to apply, what the process entails and why accreditation is important.

For senior practitioners, CPRS members with at least 20 years of professional experience (and at least 10 years of society involvement) can become a member of the College of Fellows. Showcase your leadership in public relations and in CPRS, see if you have what it takes to be a member of the College of Fellows.

See you there!
