Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Certification


Beginning Accountant-Auditors are encouraged to pursue Certified Public Accountant (CPA) licensure. To encourage CPA licensure, the Auditor-Controller's Office provides two key incentives:

  1. reimbursement for 75% of the cost of CPA review materials, and 
  2. a 5% earnings allowance once CPA licensure has been achieved.
