How to become a PPR?

To speed up the processing of practical experience authorization requests from candidates, accounting firms and organizations submit their practical experience program (including the job-related tasks) to CPA Atlantic School of Business for pre-approval.

  • Take on CPA candidates on a regular basis;
  • Have a CPA member on its management team who will take ownership of the CPA pre-approved program;
  • Provide candidates with the opportunity to develop CPA competencies through progressively diverse and complex tasks.

If you wish to have your organization accredited, contact the Practical Experience team,

The CPA designation gives you the set of skills to do anything.
