      Accreditation in public relations is a voluntary certification program administered by the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) to recognize public relations practitioners who have the required depth of experience and competence in the professional practice of public relations. An accredited member is permitted to use the designation "APR"(Accredited in Public Relations) after his or her name.

      To seek accreditation, the practitioner must be a member in good standing with CPRS and have been employed full-time in a public relations position for a minimum of five years. To become accredited requires submission of a significant work sample; an oral exam and a proctored three-hour written exam (essay style).
