Become a CPA PEP Capstone 2 National Marking Centre marker

CPA Canada is looking for National Marking Centre (NMC) markers for the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP) Capstone 2 module. If you’re interested, here’s what you need to know.

We are looking forward to working with our 2020 National Marking Centre (NMC) team members to help our Common Final Examination (CFE) candidates pass the CFE and complete their CPA education requirements.

If you are passionate about accounting education and want to invest time to shape the future of our profession, we invite you to apply to be a part of our team.


  • Case marking centres are remote
  • Mandatory asynchronistic training is required prior to attendance at training webinars
  • There are 14 case marking centres for Capstone 2:
    • 2 x Day 1 cases
    • 3 x Day 2 cases
    • 10 x Day 3 cases
  • NMC markers are expected to accurately assess candidate responses and provide value-added feedback.

For addition information, refer to the Important Dates and Information for NMC markers.


  • CPA in good standing.
  • Fluency in English and/or French.
  • Online facilitation or other marking experience is beneficial, but not required.


  • 30 hours (not including start-up) over a 3 to 4* day period for each individual case marking centre.
  • 40 hours (not including start-up) over a 4 to 6* day period for the mock CFE case marking centre.
  • New markers must be available to mark for at least one of the following:
    • Both Day 1 cases, July 31 – August 4 and August 26 – 30 for a minimum of 30 hours each, or
    • Day 3 mock CFE, August 9 – 15, a minimum of 40 hours.
  • There is no minimum number of case marking centres you must sign up for; markers tend to find efficiencies when they mark more than one of the same case type (Day 1 vs. Day 2 vs. Day 3).

*It is recommended that you front load your availability as each case marking centre will end when all the submitted papers have been marked


  • Renumeration is based on a fee per case marked**
  • A target bonus is paid for mandatory preparation and training time once 50% of the target number of papers (per marker) for each case centre is reached.
    • Target is based off the number of papers a marker is expected to reach given the minimum marking commitment hours.

**Average marking time will be determined by CPA Canada prior to the receipt of contracts. The per case remuneration will be determined using the average marking time determined above x $60 per hour. Markers will be compensated for each paper marked that meets or exceeds minimum quality standards.
