How does it work?
The CPA Parliamentary Academy online curriculum currently comprises of two programmes:
- CPA Parliamentary Professional Development Certificate
- CPA Parliamentary Service Professional Development Certificate
To be awarded either certificate, a student must complete and pass all relevant courses within the certificate programme. For the CPA Parliamentary Professional Development Certificate, students should complete courses 101, 102, 103 and 104. For the CPA Parliamentary Service Professional Development Certificate, students should complete 01, 02, 03, 04 and 05. Once all of the relevant courses have been passed, the student should contact the CPA Headquarters Secretariat to receive the overall programme certificate.
However, students also have the option to just take a standalone course. Once passed, students will be issued automatically with a single course certificate.
Although each programme and course has been designed specifically for either Parliamentarians or Clerks and officials, the programmes and courses can be taken by either group if they wish.
