Skills – Opportunity – Growth
PRISA regards itself as the premier professional body in South Africa dedicated to the education, development, regulation and support of public relations and communication professionals.
It will benchmark your existing skills and PRISA membership will confirm your status as a professional in your chosen field.
PRISA also raises the competence and professionalism of its members through Continuing Professional Development (CPD), thus paving the way for career development and raising the standards of performance in the workplace.
Membership of PRISA is an excellent way to establish your credentials and gain professional status for the work that you do. It allows you to develop your key skills through ongoing training and support.
What are the benefits?
Professional credibility and status
Registration with PRISA will increase your opportunities for career development. The institute's progressive levels – student, affiliate, associate, practitioner (PRP), chartered practitioner (CPRP) and the internationally recognised accredited practitioner (APR) – give you a pathway for progress.
Your registration will show that you have achieved a recognised level of competence, that you are committed to keeping your skills and knowledge up to date and are a member of a recognised well-established body.
You are able to use the professional designations behind your name once you have been registered.
PRISA's professional designations require you to have recognised qualification and relevant work experience.
Members can call upon PRISA expertise and resources. The institute offers a range of services that will enable them to continue their professional development long after they have completed their initial qualification. Services include access to a library, subscription to Communika, discounts on seminars, workshops and conferences.
