Question: How many years of public relations experience is required before I can pursue Accreditation in Public Relations?
            A. 2 years
            B. 5 years
            C. 10 years
            D. None of the above

Answer: D. There is no requirement for years of experience before a candidate can pursue Accreditation in Public Relations; however, the Universal Accreditation Board strongly recommends candidates have five years of PR experience. The less experience you have, the harder it is to apply the materials to the case studies presented in the examination questions.
