CPA Australia Foundation exams

CPA Australia developed the foundation exams to ensure that those without the traditional accounting education background are given the opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and the acumen required to be successful and fully prepared for the CPA Program.

Please Note

To be eligible to schedule an exam, you must first be enrolled in a foundation exam 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.

For more information on special exam arrangements, please refer to the CPA Australia’s website (foundation exams). Applications must be made prior to 30 days prior to scheduled exam date and are subject to CPA approval.
