A pathway to CPA

‘The Certified Internal Auditors of Pakistan (CIAP)’ members who have completed their certification can now apply for exemption in up to 8 papers of the CPA-Pakistan qualification. This exemption will enable CIAP members to fast-track their journey towards becoming a CPA-Pakistan and enhance their professional credentials even further.

By claiming exemption in 8 papers, CIAP members can significantly reduce the time and effort required to complete the CPA-Pakistan qualification.

To apply for exemption, CIAP members must submit their CIAP certification, along with the relevant documents and application form, to the CPA-Pakistan examination board. The board will review the application and determine the papers for which exemption can be granted based on the content covered in the CIAP certification.
