Becoming a CPA is more than being an accountant. Having the CPA qualification leads to a long rewarding career, one that allows you to simultaneously have a life outside of work. The all-important work life balance!
The CPA programme comprises 15 examinations, made up of a formation level and a professional level, and a fully integrated practical experience requirement.
Students seeking a challenging but secure career are increasingly opting for a professional qualification like that offered by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland), knowing it is held in very high regard by employers both at home and abroad.
