Institute of Public Relationship rolls out professional accreditation programme

Accra – The Institute of Public Relations (IPR) Ghana is rolling out its 2018 Annual Professional Accreditation Programme from Monday, June 4, at its secretariat at Ridge in Accra.

A statement signed by Mr Charles Adjei Tetteh, the Executive Secretary of IPR-Ghana, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, noted that the IPR accreditation programme had been designed to address the needs of the world’s fast evolving communications space.

It said: Our fast evolving communications space requires communications practitioners to be abreast of new developments, best practices and applications, especially of new technologies to communications practice.

It further noted that the month long programme would see seasoned communications practitioners facilitating discussions on Strategic Public Relations Management, Public Relations Writing, Integrated Communications, Etiquette and Protocol, Media Management and New Technology, and Public Relations Law and Ethics.

The statement said the programme was in part fulfilment of the Institute’s cardinal objective of training Public Relations (PR) professionals and strengthening the professional capabilities of members to effectively take on the PR needs of corporate institutions, government and high-profile individuals.

It is expected that this year’s accreditation programme would offer participants the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base, enhance their skills and further enrich their wealth of experiences.

It would also provide the opportunity to build new networks of peers to meet the expectations of employers and satisfy the needs of consumers and clients, the statement said.

It noted that: Membership of the Institute is categorized under Affiliate, Associate and Accredited so at the end of an intensive one month training programme (in the evenings) participants would be tested to enable successful candidates move up the rungs of membership.

Enlisting on IPR Ghana’s Accreditation Course could be one of the best career investments a PR practitioner or aspirant would ever make as increasingly, most employers are insisting on IPR Accreditation/Membership as a major prerequisite for communications related job vacancies.
