Newly Qualified Members

Congratulations to all our newly admitted CPA Ireland members who were conferred on 9 December in the O’Reilly Hall, UCD. We wish you every success in your future career as a CPA. The March 2024 edition of Accountancy Plus will include a special feature on the conferring ceremony.

Training Records

Students are reminded of the requirement to log their training and submit it to the Institute for review. All training must be submitted through MyCPA and submitted to your mentor for approval each quarter. The final date for submitting training completed in 2023 will be 31 January 2024.

Students who submit their training as required will receive feedback from the Institute highlighting any issues to ensure that every student is on track to meet the Institute’s requirement in terms of depth and breadth of training.

Trainees who do not comply with the requirement to log their training each quarter, may find that although they have more than three year’s relevant experience, they are unable to apply for membership on completion of examinations, as they do not have sufficient training logged and accepted by the Institute.

Students are reminded of the requirement to be able to demonstrate in-depth competence in at least two of the six training areas as required. Detailed information about the Institute’s training requirements may be found on the CPA Ireland website.

Examination Success

On behalf of CPA Ireland, we would like to congratulate all of our students who were successful in their exams in August 2023.

Special congratulations to our prizewinning students who each achieved first place in their CPA examinations in 2023 (April and August sittings).
