This program is a collaborative effort developed by CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and the Institute of Public Accountants.

This initial phase includes eight subjects, each spanning four weeks, amounting to 32 weeks of comprehensive formal learning. The training is designed to enhance your knowledge and communication skills, preparing you for successful integration into the Australian accounting workplace. Classes are conveniently scheduled once a week at our campuses in Sydney allowing flexibility around your personal commitments.
