CPA Australia’s Finance Operations Development Program equips professionals with specialised technical and industry-relevant skills to increase their employability. The initiative represents our commitment to provide life-long learning tailored to our members’ needs. 

This program involves training in the key areas of financial management, business management, leadership and risk management. It helps facilitates job readiness for aspiring individuals going into a finance operations environment and fills the skills gaps of current finance operations practitioners.

Now, it’s even more attractive for you to sign up for any of the 12 workshops, thanks to support by NTUC U Associate and the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) in Singapore. Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents will receive training subsidies of more than 40% of the course fees in the Finance Operations Development Program.
