The CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP) is a graduate-level program leading to the Chartered Professional Accountant designation. It is designed to meet the needs of industry, government and public practice and provide professional accountants with the knowledge and skills to succeed in whatever role or position they take on.

The CPA PEP consists of six modules and the Common Final Examination (CFE). The courses are delivered online. Candidates must successfully complete the CFE to finish the CPA PEP. To qualify for certification as a CPA, candidates must also fulfil the CPA Practical Experience Requirements (CPA PER).

The CPA PEP takes two years to complete on a part-time basis as you work at relevant employment. Its structure and content are developed nationally, based on the CPA Competency Map, and is delivered for CPA Saskatchewan by the CPA Western School of Business (CPAWSB). The admission requirements are an undergraduate or master’s degree with 120 credit hours and required prerequisite courses.
