Paul is working as a contract project manager and helps large corporations implement their IT projects on time and within budget. The nature of his work means he changes jobs quite frequently. He has held three different jobs with three different companies in the last year. To keep track of his experience, he fills out a claim form before he finishes a contract.
For Paul’s work to be considered ‘relevant’ he must satisfy at least one technical skill. He looks through the skills list. After reviewing the list, Paul finds that he can demonstrate appropriate examples for three technical skills featured in the list:
- MAN 2 – contributing to the design of organisational processes
- MAN 4 – establishing financial control systems
- FRM 4 – developing financial risk control systems.
He also feels his work in Project Governance is relevant, and while it’s not on the list, he submits a self-written example demonstrating his experience.
When he’s completed the form, he has the company’s CFO (a CPA) sign off his experience before he finishes his contract. Paul does this each time he finishes a contract and he now has three forms ready to submit.
Paul knows he is only expected to submit a claim to CPA Australia once a year. So Paul kept his forms safe and submitted them to CPA Australia together for verification.
