Minnesota to Host APR Boot Camp April 11-14

January 25, 2012

Are you seeking Accreditation this year? You’re in luck! Our Minnesota Chapter is hosting an APR Boot Camp course in Minneapolis this spring. The chapter has even arranged a block of rooms (available through March 12 or until sold out) at a special rate.

The APR Boot Camp is a four-day intensive course for candidates to prepare and advance though the Readiness Review™ 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 don’t permit extensive preparation time.

More information and registration instructions are available at PRSA.org > Learning.
