AIA and Chung Shou Knowledge Management Global Learning Centre (CSKM) announced an agreement in February 2014, to run an AIA CPA Conversion programme for members of the Federation of CPA Associations of Chinese Taiwan and the US CPA in Taiwan. CSKM is a leading establishment that works with a number of international universities in China, Europe, and the US, offering educational opportunities to a wide range of students.
It must be noted that the course is only available to qualified Taiwan CPA or USA CPA members, in good standing, resident in Taiwan, who have qualified by exam. The programme is not open to those who have gained their CPA membership on the basis of experience or other reciprocal arrangements.
The CPA Conversion programme will consist of two topics: UK Company Law and International Financial Reporting Standards. Enrolment for the programme will begin in February 2014, with exams taking place in June.
A three hour exam for each paper.
On completion of the conversion course, successful candidates are eligible to apply for membership of AIA. All applications for AIA Associate Membership through the conversion programme must be submitted via CSKM.
