Financial planning electives in the CPA Program
There are three Financial Planning electives in the CPA Program. Having completed an Australian taxation undergraduate subject you may choose from these electives according to your interest and the number of available elective choices you have.
Financial Planning Fundamentals is the initial subject of the three financial planning electives and is required to be completed before enrolment in either of the remaining two subjects.
Either Superannuation and Retirement Planning or Investments may be chosen as a second financial planning elective through the CPA Program.
Any of the three financial planning subjects available in the CPA Program, as well as the fourth financial planning subject available outside the CPA Program, can be accessed by existing CPAs who wish to gain knowledge and expertise in financial planning and potentially pursue a career as a financial planner.
