PUC offering Becker CPA Exam Review Program Saturdays, starting 6/11

The Becker CPA Exam Review Program will be offered at Purdue University Calumet Saturdays, beginning June 11.

Sessions, taught by professional accounting experts from Becker and Purdue Calumet, will be scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hammond campus. The program is designed to prepare accounting graduates for the CPA Exam, of which a passing grade is required to become designated as a Certified Public Accountant.

Over the past 50 years, Becker has helped more than 400,000 candidates achieve their CPA designation. Becker students pass at twice the rate of non-Becker CPA Exam candidates, based on averages of American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)-published pass rates.

“Offering the Becker Program at the Purdue Calumet campus provides individuals from Northwest Indiana and surrounding areas a convenient location to prepare for the exam,” Purdue Calumet Accounting Department Head Ed Furticella said. “The program has an impressive reputation, and we are excited to offer it on our campus.”

The Becker Program offers preparatory instruction in each of the four focal areas of the CPA Exam: Financial, Audit, Regulation and Business. Individuals can enroll in any or all of the four focal areas. The total program fee is $3,065. Purdue Calumet students who enroll within 90 days of university graduation will receive a $400 discount. The enrollment fee of single focal areas is $990.

The fee covers includes lectures; textbooks; multiple choice, simulation and practice exam software; study planning and review tools; the Becker Promise; and unlimited academic support.

Course sessions will take place most Saturdays through Nov. 12. Enrollment procedures and other information can be obtained at www.becker.com or by phoning 877.CPA.EXAM. Questions also can be directed to Prof. Furticella at furticel@purduecal.edu or by phoning 219/989-3184.
