We hold certificate presentation ceremonies across Australia and in other locations worldwide. 

Attendance at a certificate ceremony is by invitation only. Due to the time required to print and prepare the certificates for presentation, only members who advance to CPA or FCPA status within a specific date range will be invited to attend the next available ceremony.  

All eligible advancing members receive an invitation to a ceremony six (6) week prior to the event. Dates for upcoming ceremonies can be found in the tables below. If you believe you are eligible to attend an upcoming ceremony but have not been invited by this date, contact us

Upcoming ceremonies 

As further ceremonies are confirmed, they will be added to the list. If you live internationally or do not see your region listed, contact your nearest CPA Australia office for further information on local certificate ceremony events.
