SECTION 4: ACCREDITATION PROCESS


New program eligibility check

We encourage higher education providers to use the diagram below to complete an initial assessment of the accounting program they would like accredited to check eligibility before submitting an application to CPA Australia.

Start

Higher Education Provider interested in having a program accredited by CPA Australia

Step 1

Review the Accreditation Guidelines.

Step 2

"At a glance" eligibility check

    1. Is the program accredited by the relevant accrediting body in that country?
    2. Is the higher education provider registered with the relevant accrediting body in that country?
    3. Does the program cover all the required competence areas listed in the accreditation guidelines?

Step 3

If the provider answered No to any of the 3 questions in Step 2 then this would indicate the program is not yet ready to be considered for accreditation by the Professional Bodies.

Enquires about these minimum criteria can be lodged via accreditation@cpaaustralia.com.au or accreditation@charteredaccountantsanz.com

If the provider answered Yes to all 3 of the questions in step 2, then the provider would be encouraged to continue with the application for program accreditation with the Professional Bodies in Step 4.
