The IPBC has expanded it's membership by introducing a new student bookkeeper membership. Student members will be part of a professional well respected association that will help them towards getting their certification and provide them with the ongoing support they need throughout their career.

To qualify as an IPBC student member you must be enrolled in bookkeeping courses or be a recent graduate and have less than 2 years bookkeeping experience.  Students can now enroll as IPBC members and utilize all of the benefits available to our bookkeeper members.

We have listed the benefits and services available to student members to make it easy to understand exactly what is available and to help you find what you are looking for.  Some of these pages are for members only, and require members to log in.  Student memberships are non voting members.

Student members are eligible to take our Certified Professional Bookkeeper (CPB) exam after passing an approved IPBC bookkeeping course. Upon successfully passing the CPB exam, students will have completed the first phase of certification, the academic requirement.

The second phase is to fulfill the 2 year work experience requirement. After working full time in the bookkeeping profession, students must provide a letter of reference confirming their 2 years of experience to receive their CPB certificate. They will then have access to the CPB logos and  will be required to upgrade their membership to a bookkeeper member.

Students who have successfully passed the exam must also follow the 15 continuing education credits required annually during their two year work experience phase of certification. Student members will have access to the IPBC on-line  webinars and regional meetings in their area which may also qualify as CE credits.
