Quarterly Update: CPA Exam Passed by WFY Employees

Wright Ford Young & Co. enjoys recognizing colleagues and clients on their achievements and success. WFY enjoys the same opportunity to also recognize our employees by spotlighting those professionals on the WFY team that have made great strides to accelerate their career. Passing the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam is just one of those career enhancing accomplishments.

We would like to congratulate the following WFY employees for recently passing all four parts of the CPA exam in the last three months:

  • Manny Trelles – Tax Supervisor

The California CPA exam is a rigorous licensing qualification to pass and has many requirements to accomplish before taking the exam. Fulfilling 150 semester hours, at least 1 year of work experience, and earning a Bachelor’s degree or higher are just a few of the many requirements for the state of California CPA exam.

After a candidate has met all the requirements to take the exam, there are four parts one must pass: Auditing and Attestation (AUD), Business Environment and Concepts (BEC), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), and Regulation (REG). There are additional requirements to complete for the CPA exam like passing all four sections with a score of 75 or higher, passing the California Professional Ethics Exam (PETH) with a score of 90 or higher, and paying any fees required to prepare and take the exam.
