Oxford College’s accounting and payroll administration program is offered in partnership with the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA). The CPA offers the only payroll certifications in Canada.

The CPA’s Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) certification is the foundation for a career in payroll.

    (transfer of credit; offered at post-secondary institutions)
  • PCP Work Experience Requirement Application (WERA)
    (a minimum of one year work experience in payroll)

All courses, including the Introduction to Accounting transfer of credit, require a passing grade of 65% in order to be accepted toward PCP certification.

Students will learn how to:

  • Keep financial records and establish, maintain, and balance various accounts using manual and computerized bookkeeping systems
  • Post journal entries and reconcile accounts, prepare trial balance of books, maintain general ledgers, and prepare financial statements
