Special Exemptions: Government, Industry and Education
Individuals working in government, industry or education, whose experience is obtained without the direct supervision of a licensed public accountant or certified public accountant, are granted some special exemptions to the experience requirements outlined above.
If an individual obtains not less than four years of experience prior to the effective date of the Accountancy Act (April 8, 1998), the Board will accept that experience until April 8, 2004. If the individual was working in government, industry or education, without the supervision of a licensee, at the time of the effective date of the Accountancy Act (April 8, 1998) and after, four years of experience will be accepted by the Board until April 8, 2002. This experience may be combined with public accounting experience on a pro-rata basis.
