Public Relations, media relations or PR is one of the most desirable career paths. Of the many public relations courses available, this one is excellent for introducing you to the basics; that you can put to immediate use.
All you need is a familiarity with Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint and the internet. Your PR training course begins with a definition of PR and the duties of a PR Assistant moving through to writing press releases before ending with feature articles.
Unlike many PR and media relations courses, this is a flexible, self-study programme, which means you can take the time to train whenever it suits you. You will create a workbook to take away as a handy reminder of your PR and media relations training, and you’ll have the prestige of being able to put the renowned Pitman Training name on your CV.
This is a firm basis for you to go on to gain PR qualifications; from the Institute of Public Relations for example. Alternatively, for an insight into a related discipline, take our Get Into Marketing course.
