On your journey to complete your CPA, we support you every step of the way through our Pre-Approved Programs. Our dedicated CPA Centre of Excellence' professionals are working hard to support our students through the CPA. We want to make sure you are well positioned for success.
In your local office, you'll be assigned a CPA coach. Your coach or the centre of excellence will be available to answer your questions, offer insights and recommendations, as well as guide you as needed. You'll also experience opportunities to participate in training seminars, workshops and practice sessions, along with relevant and supportive reference materials. As you prepare for the CFE, you'll be able to track your progression using the report cards provided by our mock exam tracking system.
We know the exams require hard work and dedication, so we give you plenty of time off to study and we pay for the exam fees.
The CFE is a rite of passage, but rest assured that when you come to work at PwC, you won't have to go through it alone.
Our programs give you the opportunity to build a strong foundation of core skills with a variety of learning experiences.
