Ready to take the next step in your public relations career?

The PRSA Sunshine District is hosting its first-ever APR Boot Camp Nov. 7-10 at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.!

Why register for the APR Boot Camp?
The APR Boot Camp is a four-day intensive course for candidates to prepare and advance through the Panel Presentation and take the computer-based Examination for Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) or Accreditation in Public Relations + Military Communication (APR+M).

This course is designed to provide a setting that will meet the needs of busy professionals whose schedules do not permit extensive preparation time.

What will the APR Boot Camp cover?

  • Day One: Panel presentation preparation in the morning, followed by a panel presentation in the afternoon
  • Day Two: Full-day preparation for computer-based examination
  • Day Three: Morning preparation session for computer-based examination, afternoon peer study time
  • Day Four: Computer-based exam at the Prometric Testing Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Please note: There is an additional fee to take the APR exam; however, those fees are at least partially reimbursed by PRSA National, pending successful completion of the exam. PRSA Sunshine also offers a $100 rebate program for local PRSA members.
