We provide support during the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP)

The CPA PEP is the graduate level program that makes up the educational portion of the CPA certification program. The CPA PEP consists of a series of modules culminating in the Common Final Examination (CFE) and is built upon the CPA competency map.

In order to obtain the CPA designation, future CPAs must develop technical and enabling competencies during their practical experience with an accounting firm. Working at WMKL ensures you will develop an appropriate range of the following five technical competencies:

  • Financial Reporting
  • Taxation
  • Audit and Assurance
  • Strategy and Governance
  • Finance

Your practical experience with WMKL also ensures you will develop all five required enabling competencies:

  • Acting Ethically and Demonstrating Professional Value
  • Solving Problems and Adding Value
  • Communicating
  • Managing Self
  • Collaborating and Leading

We know that a firm’s most valuable asset is its employees. Our goal is to provide a challenging and rewarding work experience that allows you to pursue both your professional and personal ambitions.

Additional CPA Student supports:

WMKL also provides financial support as you obtain your CPA designation by completing the Core, Elective and Capstone modules and exams, as well as for the CFE.

Financial support is also provided to those who elect to complete the Masters of Accountancy route instead of the CPA PEP route in order to obtain their designation.
