Fellowship Exam Preparation

Purchase Fellowship Modules in the ASPR Learning Center

You’ve attended one of the Fellowship Certification Program modules and now you’d like to take the exam. Are you ready? Do you know what to expect? What do you need to do to register and prepare for the exams? Here are a few things you should know about the exams to help you prepare.

Things to Know:

  • You must be a current AAPPR Member in order to take a Fellowship Exam (you must also be a current member to utilize the Associate, Diplomate, or Fellow designations).
  • You don’t need to take the exams in sequence, though that is helpful to do so as each module builds upon the previous one.
  • Once you pass the 101 exam, you wil receive a 101 completion certificate
  • Once you pass both 101 and 201 exams, you will receive a 201 completion certificate
  • After passing the 101, 201, and 301 exams, you will receive a 301/Fellow completion certificate and be recognized as a Fellow of AAPPR (FASPR).
  • When you pass an exam, a certificate for the appropriate exam completion status may be downloaded from your "My AAPPR” profile.  The certificate for the Fellow level will also be printed and mailed to your office address so it can be displayed.
  • Fellowship Status is good for three years; renewal is required at the three year mark.
  • Renewal for the Fellow level is obtained by achieving 24 education hours over the three year period or by passing all three exams again if hours have not been maintained (a $25 fee is required for renewal application and certificate). It’s easy to obtain 8 credits per year by attending AAPPR webinars at no charge!

Tips on Exam Preparation:

  • It is recommended that you take your exam as soon as possible after attending the module.
  • It is recommended that you prepare for the exams utilizing all of the materials provided to you in the module. This includes the presentation materials, supporting documents, and any other resources available on the relevant topics.
