Prior to enrolling in any technical courses, it is recommended you successfully complete the following five entry courses typically covered in a two-year accounting diploma program:

  • Introductory Financial Accounting
  • Introductory Management Accounting
  • Intermediate Financial Reporting I
  • Intermediate Financial Reporting II
  • Business Law

These entry courses are required prerequisites for specific technical and applied courses. You may complete them through the CPA profession (where they are offered as part of CPA preparatory courses) or from a post-secondary institution. Ethics and Workplace Skills and Accounting Software Applications are prerequisites for other applied courses.

All entry and technical courses must be successfully completed before enrolling in any applied courses. Applied courses are available through select PSIs across Canada.
