Course fees may be paid by cash, money order, cheque, payable to the Chartered Professional Accountants of Nova Scotia [CPA Nova Scotia], VISA or Master Card, see Registration & Conditions section for more information. Listed below is the pricing for Passport Valid PD courses, unless otherwise indicated on the course description:
Members who have qualified for a fee waiver of their membership dues, unless otherwise approved by the Director of Professional Development, shall be entitled up to a maximum of 21 hours in any calendar year of any Passport Valid in-class ourses for an administrative fee of $25 (plus HST) per course/per day. Further, the administrative fee will be waived for a member who has received a full fee waiver due to a disability or financial hardship.

PD Passports offer members and other professionals interested in taking multiple Passport valid courses throughout the year at tremendous savings. Personal Passports allow a member to receive over a 50% savings per course if taking advantage of the full five days of courses, mixing half-days, full-days and two day passport valid courses, but could also receive a saving of 28% if only registering for three days of PD in one year. Corporate Passports work potentially on the same basis, the more courses taken, the bigger the savings, but this passport has the versatility of multiple users from the same company or firm (see Registration & Conditions ). PD Passports are valid from April 1st to March 31st the following year.
Member Passport holders can register for additional courses in excess of the passport entitlement at the per course passport cost. The following table shows a breakdown of the Passport pricing:
PD Passport fees
Additional per course fee
5 full/10 half
9 full/18 half
Some courses are not passport eligible due to arrangements made by the presenters; when possible a reduction in the course fee has been offered to passport holders.
