Pre-Approved Program Route (PPR) Employers

The Experience verification route (EVR) requires future CPAs to record details, via our practical experience reporting tool (PERT), about their employer, their role, and the specific duties they are performing. They will also be required to self-assess their level of proficiency and progression.

The required 30 months of relevant practical experience form a critical component of the CPA pre-certification program. There are two routes to having CPA practical experience evaluated. Both routes are equally rigorous in their assessments of the development of required competencies.

The Pre-approved program route (PPR) has positions or programs with employers that have already been reviewed and approved by the profession, thus the reporting process for future CPAs is streamlined.
