You can submit a claim once every 12 months, or you can wait until you’ve gained the full 36 months and submit a single claim.

When you have completed an experience claim form (PDF) and the form has been signed-off as required, you're ready to submit the form to CPA Australia for verification.

To submit your claim:

  • scan your signed experience claim form
  • email it to

You’ll receive an email confirming our receipt of your claim. Please allow up to 10 days from our receipt of your claim to receive your verification.

When your 36 months of experience and the required skills have been verified, you’ll have met your experience requirement. And when you’ve satisfied the CPA Program education component and hold a degree-level qualification with a recognised education provider, you’ll be ready to advance to CPA status.
