Offering online CPD for PR professionals
1 month ago
IPRA has renewed its agreement with the Irish Academy of Public Relations to provide online communications training to its global membership. The Academy is a platform for PR practitioners, providing online courses in communications disciplines like writing feature articles, negotiating sponsorship, shooting smartphone video or training for radio.
Ellen Gunning, director of the Academy explains: “Changes in Artificial Intelligence, governance standards, equality & diversity practices and communications platforms, amongst others, happen fast. You need to keep abreast of industry changes to stay on top of your game. Our Continuing Professional Development courses allow you to do just that.”
A resource for PR professionals
Courses are a maximum of three-hours long and are intended as a working resource for practitioners who might need, for example, to up skill before a pitch meeting. Training topics are continually reviewed in light of current practice. All courses are online and so are perfect for remote working. More information is here.
