* - Chellenging the examination means that the students have the opportunity to directly sit for the course exam without following the full course
2) Full CPA PEP Path
If you do not have a university degree and have less than eight years of relevant experience, you will be required to complete the following components of CPA Canada:
Practical Experience Requirement
The assessment of your experience is separate from your application for registration as a student.
After your student registration is approved, and once you enrol in a CPA PEP module, you can apply for an exemption from the prescribed practical experience requirement (30 months) by submitting a Practical Experience Form for Internationally Trained Accountants for each of your previous employers and current employer. Both international and Canadian experience can be considered.
All documents can be uploaded through your online application, except where originals are required. In order to apply for student registration, you will need:
1) Proof of I.D.
If the name on your document is different than your legal name document, you must also provide a proof of legal name change document or a marriage certificate.
2) Letter of Good Standing (LGS)
3) Detailed chronological resume
4) WES report
If applying for exemptions under the challenge pathway based on holding a University Degree you must provide an original World Education Services (WES) credential evaluation report through their International Credential Advantage Package (ICAP) for your University Degree(s). This must be provided electronically to CPA Ontario via Access WES, their secure online delivery system.
