The foundation level represents the first eight units of the CPA Program and provides you with the opportunity to access a career based on accounting skills. The exams test the core knowledge that is required to commence the professional level of the CPA Program.
Please Note: To be eligible to schedule an exam, you must first be enrolled in a foundation level unit with CPA Australia.
Once you have enrolled, exam appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. You should schedule your exam appointment as soon as possible as available seats are limited in certain locations, especially toward the end of the exam delivery window.
After you schedule your exam appointment, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation email listing your exam date, your exam time, the address and phone number of the test centre, and directions to the test centre.
