MEPRA Launches Virtual Summer School

Make the most of your summer and enrol in MEPRA’s virtual summer school to fast track your continuing professional development (CPD) and become an accredited communications professional!

MEPRA has partnered with Acorn Strategies, APCO Worldwide, ASDA’A BCW, CARMA, Hanover, KEKST CNC, Leaders in Digital, Socialeyez and Tabreed to host 12 FREE virtual workshops from 18th June to 20th August on a number of topics to help future proof your career, including sessions on digital marketing, presentation skills, measurement, strategy, leadership plus more.

You can opt to enrol in just one or two courses and earn 5 CPD points per session (or just join in for fun), or register for the full programme to earn 60 CPD points and complete one out of the two years required to become a MEPRA or CIPR accredited communications professional. Once you have earned 120 points (60 per year) you will qualify for MEPRA Accredited PR status (MAPR) and CIPR accredited status (MCIPR), which can be used in your designation and added to your CV to demonstrate your commitment to your professional development.

A public relations professional’s success is dependent on staying relevant, resourceful, and inspired. Committing to your CPD can help you achieve all this and more. Even though we are offering you accreditation you don’t have to take part if you just want to attend the sessions and learn without worrying about points, that’s fine too!
