Supporting accountancy students from an early stage in their studies to qualifying as a professional accountant is a key objective for CPA Ireland.
CPA Ireland are now accepting students who are still in university or college on a new initiative called CPA FastTrack.
This programme allows students in college to count a summer internship or work placement module towards the training requirement with CPA Ireland. This essentially means that students will qualify faster with CPA than any other accountancy body. A wide range of Universities and Institutes of Technology nationwide have already endorsed this new initiative.
Speaking on the initiative, CPA President Cormac Mohan said ‘being part of this exclusive FastTrack programme will not only mean that students qualify faster, but they also gain access to the CPA Ireland community including support from the student services team, online communities and social events, as well as lucrative career opportunities once qualified with a diversified skill set. We would also actively encourage employers who have third level students completing a summer internship or work placement, to share the details of the FastTrack programme with them’.
