PPR Employer FAQs

Program Managers

Enter the last date of their employment by clicking Employment Ended within PERT for the candidate(s), this will notify the provincial/regional body. Review the PERT Guide for Program Managers for instructions on Employment Ended. 

When candidates leave an organization they are required to update their employment information within three months of the change. This involves completing experience reports that relate to that organization and submitting a Change of Job CPA Review. When off-boarding candidates, it is recommended that you remind them of this requirement. Additionally, we recommend providing them with the leave they are to report for accuracy. 

Complete the Request for Addition/Change in Pre-approved Program Route Leader or Program Manager form if you would like to add or make a change. Send the completed form via email to ppr@cpaalberta.ca.

If you cannot see all of the candidates once you login to PERT, they have to create a PERT profile or update their PERT profile to indicate employment in your program. 

Once a candidate creates a profile in PERT and/or indicates employment in your program, you will receive an automated email to confirm the candidate’s employment information. Once you are logged in, you will be able to see a full listing of students who have indicated employment in your program. For more information, please refer to the PERT Guide for Program Managers
