CPA Australia is one of the world’s largest accounting bodies with a global membership of more than 170,826 members working in more than 100 countries and regions around the world. We provide distance education programs to help accounting, finance and business professionals earn an internationally recognised designation.
Our exams are delivered by Pearson VUE. Throughout the pandemic, we were able to quickly introduce online exams to ensure members could continue their progress despite local restrictions.
Over the last few semesters, we’ve seen an increased demand for more test-centre exams, with a majority of members preferring the dependability and minimal preparation required for this format.
In 2024, to honour this preference and offer ongoing flexibility, we’ll be prioritising test-centre exams and reducing our focus on online exams.
