A pair of Vernon post-secondary students have earned their chartered accountant credentials.
Janna Cummings, of Romei Plummer, and Sheila Westwell, of BDO Canada, picked up their certificates at a ceremony in Vancouver. They are now eligible for membership in the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C.
“These students have earned their CA designation by successfully completing a rigorous and competitive academic program, focused on business and accounting competencies,” said Richard Rees, CEO of the institute.
To qualify as a CA, students must have a university degree or equivalent, 30 months of practical work experience and complete courses through the CA qualification program. They must also pass a comprehensive national final exam.
