A foursome of Vernon chartered accountant students have survived the national Uniform Evaluation.

Jennifer Dennis (BDO Canada LLP), Stephen L’heureux (PMT Chartered Accountants), Aaron Stuart (KPMG LLP) and Courtney Wallden (Sladen Moore) all passed the exam, announced the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. and the CA School of Business.

A total of 427 B.C. writers successfully completed the test, which was written over three days in September.

“On behalf of the institute’s council, I would like to congratulate these students for successfully passing the UFE,” said Lenard Boggio, president of the ICABC. “We welcome them to the ranks of chartered accountants.”

To become a CA, students must complete rigorous course work, pass the UFE, and then work for 30 months in a CA firm.

Said John Gunn, CEO of the CA School of Business: “By demonstrating that they possess the technical skills and professional qualities expected of new CAs, these individuals have shown that they are ready to become the newest members of our profession.”
