Continuing Professional Development

CPAs must continually maintain, update, improve and enhance their knowledge and skills in the areas in which they work. CPA Nova Scotia’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements have been aligned with the International Federation of Accountants’ (IFAC) CPD standards. To maintain public trust, and to uphold the reputation of the CPA designation, all members must continually update their professional knowledge.

CPA Nova Scotia Continuing Professional Development Program features many informative, relevant and affordable options for you to grow and develop as a professional.  

This program includes offerings of half, full and two-day courses developed by the interprovincial Professional Learning and Development Programs Committee (PLDPC), entrepreneurial courses, as well as a selection of live broadcast courses and live webinars. There are also many other offerings available through this program. 

CPA Nova Scotia also offers Personal and Corporate Passports, a cost-effective program for members to complete their professional development requirements.
