The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is responsible for the design and development of the Uniform CPA Examination. The CPA Exam is universally accepted by all 55 US state and territory boards of accountancy to support their licensing decisions. The mission of the AICPA Exam Board of Examiners is to provide reasonable assurance to boards of accountancy that candidates who pass the CPA Exam possess the minimum technical knowledge and skills necessary for initial licensure to protect the public interest.
AIR recently helped AICPA update their practice analysis of CPAs to reflect changes to the profession, with a focus on advancements in technology and data analytics. In addition, AIR helped AICPA link changes in the CPA profession to changes to the test blueprint of the Uniform CPA Exam and collected evidence to support the proposed changes.
