Frequently Asked Questions

Why did the Passport program end?
Our new program is designed to streamline the registration process and improve the user experience when purchasing courses. CPD Advantage will allow more members to utilize the savings, without restricting them to a finite number of courses. Everyone will have access to an unlimited number of courses at a discounted rate. Under this new program, we will also be able to offer more variety in course content and instructors.

What is the discount and when can I use it?
Twice a year, our courses will be available at a 50% discounted rate using an online promotional code provided by CPA Nova Scotia. This code can be used for all courses you purchase during the discount sales period, without limit. These discount sales periods will occur during the same time frames as the historical Passport sales periods: six weeks in early spring and six weeks in late summer. We will notify members with the code at the beginning of both the Spring and Fall/Winter sessions. The code will also be posted on the Courses & Events page on our website during each of the six-week periods.

How do I use the discount code?

You will register for the course as normal and enter the discount code during cart checkout.

Do I have to attend the course during the discount sales period?

No, you must purchase a course(s) during the discount sales period to get the reduced price.

My organization always purchases a Corporate Passport. What are our options now?
Organizations can now purchase as many courses as they wish for their employees, at the discounted rate, during the discount sales periods. Those employees can register directly online or CPA Nova Scotia can help with the registration process for a small administrative fee.

Can I only purchase courses during a discount sales period?
No, we encourage you to take advantage of all our quality content and multi-faceted delivery methods throughout the entire year! Courses purchased outside of the discount sales periods will be purchased at regular course prices.

Under the Passport program, I could buy the passport and wait until later to register for courses. Can I still do that?
No, Under the CPD Advantage program, you must register for courses during the discount sales period to use the discounted rate. The purchase and register functions are one and the same.
