CTA Accredited Employer Programme

To further strengthen and advance the status of CTA in Hong Kong, and to provide continuing support to the members’ firms and training to their staff members who are eager and passionate to become CTAs, the Institute has introduced the CTA Accredited Employer Programme (AEP) in 2012.

Under this Programme, the Institute has provided training platforms to the Accredited Employers in areas of technical issues and experience sharing in their daily work engagements, and there are examination-oriented seminars for the CTA Students. A variety of social activities and visits, in particular to our counterparts in Mainland China, have also been organised to enhance the networking of the members joining this Programme.

The Institute now has more than 260 Accredited Employers, including many renowned CPA firms. Please click here for the list of Accredited Employers.
