  2. Complete your additional studies via accredited courses offered by other higher education providers


Those who undertake foundation exams enjoy a flexible, self-paced study program – you can enrol anytime and choose when you will sit your exam. You should schedule your exam at the time of enrolment and must sit your exam within 12 months of your enrolment.

If you would like to complete your outstanding competency areas through CPA Program's foundation exams, you can begin the enrolment process by filling out the online form below. A complimentary update to your skills assessment may be available by choosing this option.
