Unhappy Negative Skills Assessment from CPAA ANZCO code 22111

Hi I am a new member. Today my husband received a negative skills assessment from CPAA. His assessment result states that he has completed 11 out of the 12 core areas, but not having met the criteria for core subject of "Accounting Theory" and hence not academacally suitable for Migration. To be eligible for migration he has to complete CPA program foundation subjects

On the other hand what is surprising is that he has received positive CPA membership assessment and has been awarded Associate Membership ASA. The only criteria to become full fledged CPA is to appear for Global Strategy and Leadership Paper.

Isnt this contradictory?....on one hand they are saying migration is possible only on clearing CPA foundation subjects which is the basic lvl and on the other hand they are saying u are eligible to become CPA by appearing for global strategy and leadership exams which is a much advanced level?

CPAA reply to this is that migration assessing and membership assessing are two different bodies. But arnt they interlinked? how can a person be asked to give foundation and advanced lvls at the same time? He is an Indian CA which is partially recognised by CPAA and comes under MRA and ICAI agreement. His basic BCom degree as well as his CA degree has covered the Accounting therory subject.

Now we have to apply for state sponsorship for NSW under skilled migration subclass 176 for which the deadline is 30th June. Can someone help us with the following?

1) Is there a way we can ask CPAA to reconsider the case? Wud it have extra cost? how much time it wud take?
2) For ANZCO 221111 can we do skills assessment from ICAA or NIA for New South Wales or is CPAA assessment compulsory?
3) What should we do at this stage?

Any help from you all will be highly appreciated.

Cpa is unprofessional

Hello there,
Hi, there I am an accountant with 2 overseas degrees and currently I am studying a Master of professional accounting in Brisbane, CPA was processing my migration assessment or 9 weeks and(processing time was 4 weeks) when I lodged my application and after that the came out that I am not academically suitable and the reason as usual ACCOUNTING THEORY I had this subject with 84 teaching hours in my degree overseas compared to 36 hours in Australian degree. Now I will appeal however I wont recommend CPA to anyone, their upgrade is going on for 6 months now!!!!! Anyone can recommend another institute to lodge my assessment one more time?
Do you think it worths appeal this decision and pay $130 by providing more detailed syllabus??

Academic and migration assessments are two completely different things. For example , theoretically speaking, Singapore CA has a MRA agreement which means it can become a full member of CPAA, however these agreements are between professional organizations. Government doesn't recognize them. So a singaporean CA will become a CPA but will not be fully accepted for immigration.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

In this case if you appear for an exam, how your employment assessment will count? from today or from your original qualification date?
