FPRA members, along with members of any of the partner organizations, are eligible to sit for the exam. Although five years of paid, full-time experience in the professional practice of public relations or in the teaching or administration of public relations courses in an accredited college or university is not required, it is strongly recommended.
What is the fee for taking APR?
The actual cost of the exam is $385. Candidates who pass the exam may be eligible for a $100 rebate from FPRA once they have completed the rebate form and sent it to the State Office. As an added membership benefit, the Capital Chapter also provides a $100 member rebate. To be eligible for these rebates, members must have advanced from their Readiness Review and taken the APR examination within 30 days of completing the Readiness Review and/or study sessions.
