Every year, many of our students complete the requirements of the CPA Program and are ready to advance to CPA status. This is a fantastic achievement and the culmination of a great deal of commitment and dedication to study.

Some students reach this milestone with particular distinction. The Certificate of Excellence recognises those students who advance to CPA status having achieved five or more high distinctions in the CPA Program.

Recipients of the Certificate of Excellence are advised in writing and are invited to attend the next available Members Certificate and Awards Presentation Ceremony to receive their certificate.

Recipients of the Certificate who are unable to attend a ceremony will be sent their Certificate to their preferred mailing address within two weeks of the ceremony.

The Certificate of Excellence was introduced in 2016 and is not available retrospectively.
