New Competency Map - 2013
The 2013 UFE Candidates' Competency Map (the Map) is now available to view (click link above). The Map provides an overview of the specific professional competencies and proficiency levels that CA candidates are expected to demonstrate on the profession’s Uniform Evaluation (the UFE). It is used by the profession’s Board of Evaluators to develop the UFE, and by accounting academics in the profession’s professional education programs and in universities to ensure that their programs cover the required competencies. Employers consult the Map to ensure that their students acquire the pre-qualification professional education necessary not only to prepare them for the UFE but also to serve as the foundation for their practical experience. CA candidates are strongly encouraged to review the Map in preparing for the UFE to make sure they possess the required competencies to the expected level of proficiency.
