Getting Started

    Becoming a CPA is often a challenging journey, but one that reaps big rewards for those who choose to pursue it. In this section we provide information on requirements for certification and answer some of your most frequently asked questions.

    This powerpoint presentation includes information on eligibility requirements, testing, and steps to take toward certification. It can be used as general information or to talk to students about the requirements of the CPA journey.
