About the APR Workshops
APR workshops last an hour and will be held weekly on Monday evenings from Feb 10 through March 24 at the Orange County Government Administration Building. The sessions are led by seasoned APR facilitators who guide discussions on topics that will be covered on the APR computer-based exam. The workshops are not required “classes” but rather a professional development networking group of mentors prepared to help you succeed.
Visit the official website of the Universal Accreditation Board for the candidate’s process chart for the examination for accreditation in public relations and the application.
