PLEASE NOTE: Most post-secondary courses are intended to meet the needs of a varied student audience and thus may not fulfill the requirements of any one professional accounting organization in their entirety.

You are encouraged to study for these exams based on the specific requirements outlined in the most recent syllabus of the applicable professional accounting organization. This may mean that you need to supplement your post-secondary course work with more syllabus-specific studies.
