CPA preparatory courses are designed for those who lack some or all of the prerequisite knowledge required for admission to the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP) or who wish to complete the Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF).
CPA preparatory courses are available in an accelerated format and delivered part-time, with options for self-study, online, and classroom learning. Students complete only those courses they need to fill in their knowledge gaps.
As of September 1, 2016, the only academic prerequisite to enroll in CPA preparatory courses is one of the following:
Students who have completed at least one year (30 credits) of post-secondary study in any discipline or who have three years of relevant work experience, which includes exposure to accounting and/or finance functions, can enroll in CPA preparatory courses. Study must be from a diploma or degree program at a recognized post-secondary institution.
For more information regarding admission, administration, courses, course examinations and other policies for the CPA preparatory courses, refer to the CPA Harmonized Education Policies Vol. 3.
