Exemptions from certain CPA examinations may be considered on the basis of your relevant previous qualifications and experience. The exemption policy exists to ensure that the point of entry for each member is reflective of their level of knowledge and skills and to prevent repetition of areas with which members are already familiar. It should be noted, however, that exemptions are not automatically granted to members, and supporting information is required to be successful in such applications.
The CPA programme comprises 17 examinations, made up of a formation level and a professional level, and a fully integrated practical experience requirement. Your entry point into CPA Program will be determined by an individual assessment of your prior education and experience. All exemptions are granted on a subject-by-subject basis to applicants holding a qualification recognised by CPA Ireland for exemption purposes. A pass mark must have been achieved in the assessment of the relevant subject. Passes by compensation are not eligible.
