How can the CPA Program enhance your career?

27 October 2016

The accounting profession offers a world of pathways and possibilities. There are many directions in which you can take your career as an accounting professional, so it’s important to arm yourself with the skills and knowledge for professional prosperity.

CPA Australia offers one of the best and most highly sought-after certifications for accountants and business professionals. The CPA Program is globally recognised, meaning that it has the potential to open doors worldwide.

Increase your earning potential

Completing the CPA Program means a lot more than simply becoming an accountant – although it does mean that your earning potential as an accountant is substantially increased. Becoming a CPA means that a whole range of new opportunities are available to you, from potentially becoming CFO or an associate at a major accounting firm to working as a strategic procurement manager.

In whichever role you end up, your CPA qualification is a vital ingredient towards ensuring you’re among the industry’s best. The skills and certification you gain from the CPA Program correlate to a sharp increase in earning potential.

Gain career-boosting knowledge and education

After you’ve completed the CPA Program, you’ll have the option of becoming a CPA Member. Membership offers you a unique range of advantages, including access to industry-specific insights. Professional development and ongoing learning can have serious benefits for your career progression and income potential in the long term, so having access to CPA Australia’s resources is a valuable addition to your career.

You’ll also benefit from the networking potential of being part of one of the world’s largest accounting bodies. You’ll have the support of thousands of other members who are committed to providing training and advocacy on behalf of finance, accounting and business professionals.

Get qualified while you study

One of the best features of the CPA Program is that you can qualify for it while you study. SCU Online’s Graduate Diploma in Accounting consists of CPA-accredited courses, so you’ll be able to join the CPA Program while bypassing the CPA Foundation exams. By streamlining your certification this way, you can gain valuable skills and fast-track your career progression. Plus, our courses are available 100 per cent online, which means you don’t have to take time off while you study.
