Locals pass national accounting exam

Two Vernon chartered accountant students passed the three-day national uniform evaluation exam

Two Vernon chartered accountant students passed the three-day national uniform evaluation exam administered by the Chartered Accountants School of Business.

They are Cyrus Tabar and Anna Tenetko-Moore.

In order to become designated, the students must complete rigorous course work, pass the UFE, and work for 30 months in an approved training office.

The national UFE ensures all Canadian chartered accountants meet the same high standards, which are recognized nationally and internationally.

“I am pleased to report that we have 417 successful UFE writers in Western Canada in 2015. It is so gratifying to see the success of this last group of writers, and we congratulate them as they start their careers as professional accountants,” said Steve Vieweg, chief executive officer of the CPA Western School of Business.

“This UFE marks the end of the CASB legacy program, but we are excited to start celebrating the future achievements of the students who are now progressing through the new CPA program.”

CPAWSB delivers the nationally-developed CPA professional education program in Canada’s western region.
