Course Components

The course is divided into five modules:

  • Module 1: Introduction to CUSPAP
  • Module 2: Ethics and Conduct
  • Module 3: Practice Standards
  • Module 4: Regulations and Policies
  • Module 5: Insurance

Students must complete Module 1 first, then may complete the other modules in their order of preference.


To successfully finish the course, students will need to complete a quiz at the end of each module achieving a passing grade of 60% or higher, within one year of registering in the course. If students do not achieve a grade of 60% on any quiz, they will be required to rewrite the quiz before proceeding. A $25 fee applies per rewrite attempt.

Once students have successfully completed all of the modules and quizzes, proof of completion is automatically provided to the AIC.
