Core module weekly activities include the following:
You should expect to spend between 12 and 15 hours each week to complete the Core 1 online learning activities.
You may require additional time to read Briefing Documents, an online reference repository.
The extension policy is outlined in the CPA Candidate Guide.
I was late with my original submission/resubmission. When will I receive the reviewed response back from the facilitator?
Facilitators will not provide feedback on late immersive case submissions or review late practice case responses for completeness. However, in extenuating circumstances, you may request an extension, following the instructions in the CPA Candidate Guide. Workload or lack of internet connection is not considered an extenuating circumstance.
If you submit assignments early because of a personal commitment or event (holidays, marriage, etc.), the facilitator will, if possible, review and return your submission early.
Immersive case activities missing an initial submission are assessed as “not submitted.” Similarly, immersive case and practice case responses demonstrating little or no effort will be considered "incomplete." Several missed or incomplete responses may affect your eligibility to attempt the module examination.
Workshops are held in several centres across western Canada. Final locations are determined by enrollment numbers and are announced once the numbers are confirmed, approximately two weeks before each session.
The session times are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
You are expected to attend the entire workshop session, and arriving late or missing a portion of the session may affect your eligibility to attempt the module examination.
In extenuating circumstances, you may request to arrive late or miss the workshop. In most cases, you will be expected to complete a make-up assignment(s) and may be charged a make-up assignment fee. If you do not attend the workshop and do not complete the make-up assignment(s), you might not be allowed to attempt the module examination.
Dress code for the workshop is "business casual," which means that candidates are not required to wear suits or ties, but are expected to look neat and "pulled together." Clean, un-ripped jeans are acceptable.
You can prepare for the workshop by completing any pre-workshop work and/or reading.
You are expected to arrive at the workshop with any pre-workshop work completed, and prepared to participate in the group discussions and activities. You are also expected to bring a laptop with all workshop materials already downloaded from your module’s Desire2Learn site.
The workshop is not formally evaluated; however, if you do not attend the workshop and do not complete the make-up assignment(s), you will not be allowed to attempt the module examination.
