New CPA licensure model moves forward
NASBA and the AICPA Governing Council have voted to support the CPA Evolution initiative. This initiative seeks to design and implement a new approach to CPA licensure. The CPA Evolution Initiative aims to ensure newly licensed CPAs have the required knowledge and skills best suited for the emerging skills and competencies necessary in today’s marketplace. A new core plus discipline model will allow candidates to show enhanced competency in a chosen discipline within the profession.
The AICPA and NASBA will work closely with universities to create model curriculum and internship programs. They will also now move forward with a significant effort to revise the Uniform CPA Exam’s content and skills blueprint, which is anticipated to culminate in the launch of a new CPA Exam in January 2024.
