The first step in your journey to becoming a CGA Professional is to complete an assessment form. This allows you to demonstrate your completed studies and professional qualifications, while also identifying if you are eligible for exemptions. By completing the assessment form, you will be able to see where you fit in to the CGA Professional Program.

When you have demonstrated that you have the required knowledge areas to start the CGA Professional Program, you can enroll online.
