Extensive feedback is provided based on CPABC’s Code of Professional Conduct (August 2016).

Note that if you are from a jurisdiction other than British Columbia, there may be some differences between the CPABC Code and the code of conduct of your regional CPA body. You are responsible for reviewing and complying with your own regional CPA body’s requirements.


Once you have completed the exercises, you are required to complete a 10-question quiz based on your legacy designation. You must achieve a score of at least 7 out of 10 in order to receive CPD credit. This course qualifies for 4 CPD credits.
