Competency-based Professional Education 

Competency-based professional education ensures that every newly certified CGA is able to fully serve the needs of clients and employers, and to protect the public interest. In short, it prepares CGAs for positions of leadership, responsibility, and trust.

CGA’s 130 competencies detail the knowledge, skills and professional values required of accountants and senior financial managers – in real working environments and to specified levels of proficiency. These far-reaching competencies are broadly categorized under:

  • Leadership
  • Professionalism
  • Professional knowledge

The CGA Competency Framework contains the complete list of competency statements, proficiency levels, assessment strategies and areas of knowledge.
