Candidates within this route are required to record details, via PERT, about their employer, their role, and the specific duties they are performing. These reports must be verified by a supervisor, who is verifying the factual accuracy of the details in the report. The profession, at the time of review, may request additional supportive details.
A pre-assessment is required for all Candidates within the Experience Verification route before their period of practical experience can begin. This pre-assessment is required in order for CPA Alberta to assess whether a Candidate's current position meets the entrance requirements. A pre-assessment is required whenever a Candidate changes employment.
Please see the PERT User Guide for the EVR route for full details on how to request a pre-assessment. Candidates are required to attach their job description and confirmation of employment to their pre-assessment. Based on our review of the pre-assessment, CPA Alberta may request additional supportive information.
If the Candidate's pre-assessment determines a Candidate's position as not qualifying, this experience will not count.
Visit the Experience Assessment page for more details on the frequency of reporting in PERT and how to submit reports.
