CPA Build© is a FREE program for Alberta CPAs and candidates.  The modules in the program may qualify for up to 10 hours of your annual unverifiable CPD requirements, depending on how much can be considered new learning. The resources include links to many sources of verifiable CPD that may be relevant for you.  CPA candidates can email to request complimentary access. 

Complexity, volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity are constants in the world of the CPA. As professionals, you are looked to, entrusted, and relied upon to protect, steward, and lead your teams, businesses, organizations and/or clients or client businesses, not only despite challenges, but often because of them. Sometimes daunting, it’s a commitment also ripe with opportunity.

CPA Build© is designed to help you be future-ready, so you can build your career—to find and set direction, and to shape the kind of future you aspire to create, and to leave behind.

This free-to-Alberta CPAs (and candidates) program begins with an overarching lens on value creation and then guides you through exploration, discovery, and self-reflection for each element of the ACCESS-BRIDGES framework—acronyms for two suites of future-ready core attention areas. The first set—ACCESS to opportunity—is more self-focused, emphasizing personal-professional success attributes. The second set--BRIDGES gaps—is more outward facing, centered on professional duty and contribution.

The program recognizes that most career paths are not linear, and job title progression often no longer applies. It’s up to you to build your own design. CPA Build© is not a substitute for conventional career services. It does facilitate self-directed future-readiness, to help you get and stay in the driver’s seat of your unique career transitions or transformations.

It’s an agile experience. Timing and emphasis are up to you—depending on your unique career ideals and direction. From a career management perspective, the program helps you gain clarity and focus regarding what to refine, upskill or develop, based on your own unique situation, demands, expectations and aspirations, and related career stage, outlook, or goals.

Through a series of self-directed reflections, short quizzes, and inquiry, you’ll discern priority and clear direction. Next steps are supported by direct links to the kinds of resources and approaches to support your success.

Upon Completion of CPA Build© will enable participants to:

  • Consider, discover, and explore key success attributes, demands, and expectations facing CPAs and your own personal readiness and proficiency to meet the challenges.
