Part / Non Qualified Accountant Test
The Part / Non Qualified Accountant Test is designed for those working as accountants, but who are not full members of a professional body such as CPA. This would include those with tertiary qualifications in accounting, provisional members of professional accountancy bodies or those with no formal qualifications but whose work experience and job categorizes them as accountants.
This test specializes in assessing accounting knowledge and skills for roles in industry or commerce such as Company Accountant, where the role requires knowledge across all areas of accounting. The test does not address tax issues.

As a recruiting manager, you gain insight into candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other part or non qualified accountants. You can also identify a candidate's performance in the activities most relevant to your vacant role.
