We hold a number of certificate presentation ceremonies across Australia and in other locations worldwide. 

Attendance at a certificate ceremony is by invitation only. Due to the time required to print and prepare the Certificates for presentation, only members who advance to CPA or FCPA status within a specific date range will be invited to attend the next available ceremony.  

Rest assured that all members are invited to attend a local ceremony in due course. If you believe you are eligible to attend the upcoming ceremony but have not been invited, please contact us

Upcoming ceremonies

Common questions

How many guests may I bring?

Your letter of invitation will detail the procedure for inviting complimentary and paying guests and specify any costs which may apply. You may invite one guest without charge.

Can I request my certificate before the presentation?

In regions where two or more ceremonies are held annually, certificates won’t be mailed out prior to the presentation. If there are extenuating circumstances and you need your certificate sooner, you can contact us to request your certificate. It’s important to note you will not receive an invitation to the certificate ceremony in this instance.  

In our smaller regions, where only one ceremony is held annually, certificates can be mailed out to members and they will still be invited to the next ceremony. Contact us for more information.

How can I attend a certificate presentation ceremony interstate?

These requests can be made by contacting us.

Will there be a photographer at my certificate ceremony?

We have a photographer present at the majority of our presentation ceremonies and photographs will be taken by a CPA Australia employee at our more remote locations. In either case, photographs will be taken of all recipients receiving their certificate. Details on how to obtain copies of your photographs will be provided at your ceremony. All services are available online for CPA members. 

Visit GFP Graduations or call 1300 360 445.

Can I get my Certificate replicated on a plaque?

GFP Graduations will attend at the majority of the presentation services and offer a range of graduation memorabilia including professional plaque services and keepsakes. All services are available online for CPA members.

Visit GFP Graduations or call 1300 360 445.

What if my location doesn’t host a certificate ceremony?

In this instance, your certificate will be posted. If you’d like to attend a certificate ceremony in another location, contact us.
