Case Problem approach is very different.
Thank you so much. This course has been so inspiring to me! I could not have done it without the urging to to a case problem and practice the Readiness Review. Wow.
I am incredibly grateful for everything I learned during the APR Online Study Course. Thank you for keeping me plugged in, allowing me to stay up to speed on my public relations skills. The new platform looks great, very modern. The more I do my job – 13-plus years now facilitating executive communications to support clean energy technologies – the more I find myself using the essential APR skills daily. I’m constantly learning and sharing with others what I learned through this experience.
Thanks for all the support. I really enjoy the online course and credit it with the ability to see PR in a completely different light.
