Chartered Accountants ANZ has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 developments and taken practical action to shift to a virtual offering to help protect our communities.

In brief

  • CA ANZ is providing the opportunity for CA Program candidates to progress this term
  • Exams for the current modules (TAX, AAA and Capstone) will be delivered online this term
  • Candidates may defer their examination or withdraw their module enrolment with no financial or academic disadvantage

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) has moved the delivery of the current CA Program module online and for upcoming exams, brought forward the introduction of online exams.

“CA ANZ is committed to providing the opportunity for our CA Program candidates to progress this term and have switched delivery of face-to face workshops online and via webinars for Capstone and CA Study Masterclass workshops,” said Simon Hann, Group Executive Education & Learning.

“In terms of exams, CA ANZ will offer the option of online exams using technology called remote proctoring. These alternative exam arrangements are secure and will ensure candidates have the choice to progress their qualifications this term, preserving academic integrity and keeping everyone safe.

Exams for the current modules (TAX, AAA and Capstone) will be delivered online this term via Blackboard and CA Program candidates will have an additional two weeks to prepare and practice.

The online exams will run between 4 May (for TAXNZ120) and 2 June (CAP120).

Candidates who do not want to take up the online option, for any reason, may defer their examination to the next offering of the exam (at this time, scheduled for Term 3) or withdraw their module enrolment with no financial or academic disadvantage.

“We understand many candidates are dealing a multitude of challenges within work, study but also at home. We have to respond to this period of disruption with care and consideration,” Simon Hann said.He asked candidates, in these “particularly challenging times” to carefully consider their situation.

“You can defer or withdraw from the module, and remember that aspiring Chartered Accountants undertaking the CA Program continue to have access to EAP for support and counselling should you be experiencing tough times.

”Employee Assistance Program (EAP) support and counselling has been extended to all members of Chartered Accountants ANZ and their families.

Simon Hann said more detailed information will be provided in the coming weeks, including hardware and technical requirements. “We will also provide you further resources such as practice questions to prepare you for the online exam experience.

”Candidates can see Blackboard for more details.
