CPA-Certified Public Accountant (CA license # 73632)

In California, to earn the prestige associated with the CPA license, individuals are required to demonstrate their knowledge and competence by passing the Uniform CPA Exam, meeting high educational standards, and completing a specified amount of general accounting experience.

By earning a CPA license, you are telling the world that you received a broad-based education, planned well, and studied hard to pass all parts of a very difficult exam. A CPA license shows that you have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be a trusted business adviser to your clients or employer and that you are an ethical individual who can offer an independent viewpoint.

In short, it means you have become a well-respected professional widely known as “the most trusted adviser.”

Chad passed all 4 parts of the CPA exam at the same time back in 1994.  This was accomplished by less than 5% of the people who sat for the CPA exam.  Currently, participants can merely take one section at a time.
