The comprehensive tuition workshops are delivered in a supportive classroom setting, among a small group of your peers. Incorporating a series of five workshops for each of the professional level segments, the tuition program is delivered by highly qualified and experienced staff who are dedicated to helping you succeed in the CPA Program.
All teaching staff have a background that includes both professional experience and university lecturing, and all are members of either CPA Australia or The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. This high calibre teaching team has been specially convened for these CPA Program tuition workshops. Staff details are shown on the workshop timetable.
Workshops are staffed by expert teachers and made up of like-minded CPA Program candidates, all pursuing the goal of passing CPA Program exams. This creates an ideal learning platform for successful completion of CPA Program professional level segments.
The CPA Program tuition workshop program for each segment has 20 hours of classroom activity consisting of:
* four teaching workshops (four hours each), and
* one revision and exam preparation workshop (four hours).
In addition, online support is available at times between workshops.
In Sydney and Melbourne, workshops are held in the evening. In Parramatta, workshops are held at weekends.
Workshops commence approximately one week after CPA Program study guides are distributed and conclude in the week before exams commence. Workshops are evenly spaced throughout the semester. Workshops are conducted in small groups to personalise the learning experience.

As a former partner in a ‘Big 4’ accounting firm it used to surprise me when one of my staff failed a professional qualification exam. It surprised me because there was nothing wrong with their ability or attitude, or the quality of the learning materials.
Further investigation showed that factors such as lack of recent exam experience, poor exam technique and not being able to figure out what was important and to study led to failure. All had the ability and drive to pass. Some just needed a bit of guidance and motivation.
In my tuition workshops for the CPA Program® , I aim to give students the best possible learning experience and to help them achieve their main objective - passing their CPA Program® exams. In this role am I lecturer, coach, mentor or motivator? The answer, ‘all of the above’.
I am proud to be part of the panel of outstanding lecturers providing Charles Sturt University’s tuition workshops supporting the CPA Program®. I look forward to seeing you in our workshops soon.
