CWU PRSSA has 5 students preparing to take the CPPR exam this year and attended a test prep session on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The 5 seniors who are taking the test this Spring were joined by 2 juniors who are starting to prepare for the test next year. It is the first year that PRSA/PRSSA National has offered the Certificate of Principles of Public Relations (CPPR) exam for students within 6 months of graduation and Central Washington University is one of the first schools preparing students for the test. Professors Cesar Garcia and Liz Kerns helped prepare the students for the exam by going over the content in the national study guide and were joined by incoming professor Kevin Brett.
One of the students who are preparing for the test wrote an article on the Central Communication Agency website.
