Your Public Relations and Communications Community

Become an APR+M

Military public affairs officers, civilian officials and contract professionals manage communications during deployed operations overseas, for domestic community and media relations and other situations. They often work under challenging conditions, which is why specialized skills are required for communicators working on behalf of our armed forces and Department of Defense.

The Accreditation in Public Relations + Military Communication (APR+M) is an enhanced certification from the well-established APR. Candidates for APR+M must demonstrate a mastery of the Accredited in Public Relations (APR) KSAs plus additional joint public affairs topics
