CPA Western School of Business Learner Update: October 2019

Oct 30, 2019

Extended Modules 

CPAWSB has been delivering extended versions of the two Core modules for several sessions. In 2020, CPAWSB will offer elective modules as a pilot to assess interest in this format. To better accommodate scheduling, extended modules will now start in the Summer and Winter sessions, rather than Spring and Fall as before. Extended modules will be offered as follows in 2020: 

  • January to July: Core 1, Core 2, Assurance, Performance Management 
  • July to December: Core 1, Core 2, Assurance, Finance, Tax 

Schedules, including registration periods, are posted on the CPAWSB website

Additional Module Offerings 

To give candidates an extra path to reach the CFE, CPAWSB will offer the full Core 1 module in the Summer session. 

Additionally, each elective will be offered in every session, meaning Performance Management and Finance will no longer be “exam only” in alternating sessions. In-person workshops may not be available in all locations based on the volume of registrations. 

Schedules, including registration periods, are posted on the CPAWSB website

Virtual Workshops 

CPAWSB is running pilots of virtual workshops for some modules during the upcoming Fall and Winter sessions. CPAWSB will contact eligible candidates about participating in these. 

Administrative Update 

CPAWSB expects to send an administrative update for the 2020/2021 academic year in December 2019. Until then, please send any questions to
