Qualification Development and Who It's For



Our qualifications are designed to give students the knowledge and skills to work in an accountancy practice. The content is specifically tailored towards the particular expertise that are required in public practice in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not offer qualifications to students living outside the UK.

The CPAA Certificate in Introductory Public Practice Accounting is aimed at students who are working within a public practice, at a junior or trainee accountant level and who wish to expand their knowledge and skills. Once they have successfully completed this qualification, students will be eligible to continue onto the CPAA Diploma.

The CPAA Diploma in Public Practice Accountancy and Taxation is for students who are working in a more senior role in an accounting practice with the eventual aim of running their own practice. Once students have successfully completed this qualification and gained two years experience, they are eligible for full membership with the CPAA.
