Indonesian Institute of Certified Public Accountants Partners With Prometric to Launch Computer-Based CPA Exam

SINGAPORE and KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Prometric, trusted provider of market-leading test development and test delivery solutions, today announced a partnership with the Indonesian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (IICPA or IAPI) to launch the computer-based CPA of Indonesia exam.

This launch marks the end of the paper and pencil test for the CPA exam that used to be conducted three times a year in Indonesia. Through this partnership, Prometric will offer increased convenience, flexibility and choice to IICPA's test-takers by allowing them to select from multiple test centres across major cities in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia; as well as dates and times within multiple testing windows throughout the year.

The CPA of Indonesia exam is a pre-requisite for obtaining a professional licensure to become a public accountant in Indonesia. In addition to extending the reach of the CPA exam through its secure network of testing centres, Prometric's test delivery system will help safeguard IICPA's intellectual property including test content, results and candidate data.

Chairwoman of IAPI, Tia Adityasih, said, "The conversion to computer-based testing (CBT) is an anticipatory move towards future global mobilisation, and is part of IICPA's grand plan in enhancing members' competence to enable them to protect public interests, as well as enhance the accounting profession. The move is also IICPA's response to the mandate from the Public Accountant Law and Ministry of Finance Decree. Through partnership with Prometric, the CPA of Indonesia exam will enter into a new era with a better exam process, with the objectives of improving the quality, security, credibility and reliability of the test; improving IICPA's services to its stakeholders; and finally, accelerating the number of CPAs of Indonesia with quality Ahead of the Curve."

The Public Accountant Act regulates the many fundamental areas of the public accountant profession in Indonesia, and aims to protect public interests and public accountants through increasing their competence, quality and integrity; and support a healthy economy efficiently and transparently. The Act authorises the public accountants association that has been approved by the Ministry of Finance to set standards for the public accountants profession, conduct public accountant profession exams, provide continuing professional development, and review quality. Based on the Decree of the Minister of Finance, IAPI has been designated as the public accountants professional association by the law. Since the law was passed in 2011, it has provided a great leap in strengthening the public accountants profession and providing better public confidence globally on Indonesia's economy.

"We are excited to be IICPA's partner in the computerisation of the CPA exam in Indonesia," said Ramesh Nava, Vice President & General Manager for Asia Pacific & Japan, Prometric. "Our experience in delivering world-class financial and accounting licensure programmes globally provides us with a deep understanding of how awarding the right people with these credentials can influence careers and impact the economy. Our team is fully committed to bringing the Indonesia CPA exam to global standards by making it accessible to test-takers in a secure and reliable testing environment, offering the best possible testing experience and upholding the value of the CPA credential through advanced data protection technologies and global best practices."

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries.
