CPA Common Final Examination (CFE)
The Common Final Examination (CFE) is the culmination of the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP). The CFE is a three-day examination that evaluates students on the competencies defined by the CPA Canada Competency Map, which outlines the knowledge, skills and proficiency levels you must have as a Canadian CPA.
During the three-day CFE you will be required to:
- Demonstrate depth in Financial Reporting and/or Management Accounting and in your Elective depth role and breadth of your abilities across all six technical competencies based on the CPA Competency Map.
- Draw on learning from your Capstone 1 case to complete Day 1 of the exam.
