Get Accredited: Join the PRSA-OKC APR Study Course

The Accredited in Public Relations (APR) credential is valuable to those practitioners who earn it; to the agencies, clients and organizations they represent; and, perhaps most importantly, to the public relations profession itself.

Start your APR journey with PRSA-OKC's summer study course, free to PRSA-OKC members. Classes will start at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, July 11, location TBA. The course will last approximately six weeks and will cover each of the KSAs (knowledge, skills and abilities) evaluated on the APR exam. Local accredited professionals will share their experiences at the sessions. You'll also connect with other accreditation-seeking professionals who can help you study and provide support through the process. Those who complete the course will move on to the Readiness Review, the final step before you sit for the APR exam. 

To participate, contact PRSA-OKC's APR chairs Bob "Pritch" Pritchard, APR, at rpritchard@ou.edu or Mike Breslin, APR, at mbreslin@uco.edu.

To learn more about the APR, download the study guide, and review other APR resouces, visit the PRSA APR section in the Learning Center.
