The PDPA program offers members who qualified without public accounting practice rights an efficient education and examination option. It comprises a mandatory education module and examination in assurance, taxation, financial accounting, finance, and strategy and governance. It is mandatory for members seeking post-certification public accounting registration in jurisdictions with no tiered registration, and for audit and review registration in jurisdictions offering tiered registration.
The PDPA module covers the technical knowledge required for public accounting registration, including tax, assurance, financial reporting, finance, and strategy and governance. It is a self-study module that consists of reading resources, practice problems and multiple-choice questions covering the CPA Competency Map at the elective level. There are no deadlines, submissions or face-to-face components (for example, workshops) to the module.
Designed as a preparatory module, participants are provided with a suggested eight-week study schedule to assist with the preparation of the PDPA examination.
The PDPA examination consists of multiple-choice questions and one case-based question testing the required technical knowledge. See the PDPA examination blueprint for more information.
Members must complete the PDPA module to be eligible to write the PDPA examination. The blueprint is available HERE.
The PDPA examination is scheduled once a year until further notice.
The 2020 PDPA exam will take place on Friday, August 28, 2020.
The CPA Harmonized Education Policies for the PDPA module and examination is now available and contains guidance and policies that cover eligibility, administration, module, examination, and integrity and behaviour.
The Policies address many concerns and questions asked by PDPA applicants and candidates, for example the limitation number for examination attempts, which is detailed in Section 4.2 Number of examination attempts.
