Session 2: Ethical Dilemmas: The Thick Grey Line 1:30 – 3:30 – 2 CPD

This course provides participants with opportunities to evaluate ethical scenarios in a variety of contexts that are realistic and representative of the CPA demographic (including industry, not-for-profit, public sector and public practice).
Participants will increase their competence and confidence in interpreting and applying the CPA Code of Professional Conduct to real-life workplace challenges.

This course will appeal to members who enjoy an actively engaging CPD setting using small group discussions and interactive polling to analyze real-life ethical scenarios.
The two-hour format will also appeal to members who choose to fulfill their ethics CPD requirement in smaller segments.

The course begins with a brief refresher of the CPA Code of Professional Conduct, followed by team-based evaluations of ethical scenarios and potential actions to determine where the line of acceptable behaviour is crossed. Small group discussions will be followed by larger group debriefs.

Reasonable familiarity with the CPA Code of Professional Conduct (or a legacy Code) is expected; participants will benefit from having gone through a prior CPA ethics course, but it is certainly not mandatory.
Content is applicable to all professional roles and all levels of previous experience.
