What is the IPP?

The International Pathway Program (IPP) is designed for experienced members of designated overseas CA bodies who are living in Australia or New Zealand and are seeking membership of CA ANZ.

The IPP focuses on the role of the CA in the current Australian and New Zealand business environment, encouraging participants to evaluate and demonstrate the way in which they may apply their technical knowledge and professional skills to add value to their clients or employer as a 'business partner'.

The program involves online activities, workshop participation and presentations, and a written examination. The IPP workshop will be facilitated over a weekend and participants will have access to the online pre-workshop activities four weeks prior to the workshop via CA ANZ – myLearning.

Enrolments for the next intake of IPP are open from 6 – 21 April 2021.
