Becoming a CPA through the Qualification Programme

QP – the peak of success


 

The Qualification Programme (QP) is a comprehensive training programme that provides the knowledge and skills necessary to become a CPA ready for the continually changing market. The QP develops the various enabling skillsets an all-rounded CPA needs through the three aspects of the programme – education, examination, and experience. 

 

Education and examination

The QP builds on your pre-entry education of a sub-degree or above qualification and progresses through workshops and examinations, which constitute the education and examination sides of the programme. 

 

Experience

On the experience side, you will not only participate in workshops that simulate issues you will face at work but also gain real-world experience under the tutelage of a CPA, which prepares you for success in your careers.

 

Future opportunities

 

From the peak of success, the QP offers you opportunities to gain other designations. As a member of the Institute you will be internationally recognized by overseas accountancy bodies under the Global Accounting Alliance through reciprocal membership agreements. You can also enjoy exemption on examination papers from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and Chinese Institute of Certified Public Accountants under the mutual examination paper exemption arrangements.


Completing the QP exempts you from passing the Hong Kong practising certificate examinations, which are necessary for registration as a CPA (practising) (執業會計師).

The following QP graduates who wish to apply for a PC are required to sit and pass the Aptitude Test in Hong Kong Law or QP Module 10 (Business and Company Law) in order to fulfil the competency requirement in local law: 

 

  • Student of accredited accountancy degree programmes of the Institute who have studied the law subject(s) (Business Law and/or Company Law) in exchange programmes at non-Hong Kong tertiary institutions; or;

  • Non-Hong Kong degree holders who are exempted from the local law subject(s) (Business Law and/or Company Law) in the accredited Conversion Programmes.
