KASNEB CPA stands for Certified Public Accountant

KASNEB CPA Examination

The KASNEB CPA examination is held twice yearly in June and December. The examination is divided into three parts of two sections each. Each section consists of three papers.

A candidate may attempt two sections in a part together or separately in ascending order but before proceeding to the next part, a candidate must pass the lower part.

CPA Study Period

The KASNEB CPA examination is rigorous and standards are high and therefore a candidate is advised to devote approximately the equivalent of eighteen months of full-time study for each part of the examination.


Ideally, therefore, a student should be able to complete the CPA examination in between four and a half and six years.

A student should programme the studies in such a way that makes it possible to take and pass the three parts in a duration of between four and a half and six years following the date of registration as a student of KASNEB.

In this way, a candidate will be able to set aside three years as a margin of safety in case of unforeseen circumstances in the preparation for the examination.

KASNEB CPA International Recognition

The KASNEB CPA examination is benchmarked on the international standards promulgated by International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB), International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB).

The CPA examination, therefore, meets the requirements of International Education Standards (IESs), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), International Accounting Standards (IASs), International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) and International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSASs).

The IESs prescribe requirements relating to entry, professional training and practice as required by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) for the qualification programme for professional accountants.

The entry requirements of IES 1 for the professional accountancy course are the minimum entry requirements for admission for a university degree course.

The entry requirements are country-specific. Holders of final CPA certificates are eligible for admission to pursue master’s and other higher degrees in reputable universities, both in Kenya and foreign countries.

KASNEB CPA Industrial Attachment and Internships

Students taking the CPA examination are advised to look for ways and means of acquiring practical experience so that they can match progress in examination with competence in the performance of duties in the work environment.

This is a requirement of IES 5 which provides for practical experience as part of the pre-qualification programme.

The minimum period of experience required is three years. Practical experience may be gained during or after the qualification process.

Upon qualifying, the CPA examination graduates are equipped with the requisite knowledge and skills they require in order to present themselves to the public as professional accountants.
