CDI Winnipeg Accounting and Payroll Grad Wins 2012 Silver Award

Monday, June 18, 2012
CDI College grads win CPA awards four years in a row

Winnipeg, MB – June 18, 2012 – Once again, a CDI College alumna has earned honours from the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA). Arlene Casubuan, a graduate of the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program at CDI College’s Winnipeg campus won the 2012 Silver Award for the CPA’s Prairie Region. This is the fourth year in a row that a CDI College grad has scored top marks in the region.

“Winning the CPA’s Silver Award was very overwhelming, but encouraging as well,” says Casubuan. “It inspires me to continue to do well in my future. After graduating, my life has changed. I now have better perspective in my life in terms of my career.”

Casubuan worked in the accounting department of a financial institution prior to immigrating to Canada, and she wanted to continue working in this field when she arrived in the country. She enrolled in the Accounting and Payroll Administrator diploma program at CDI College, knowing that the program would help her get started.

The program offers hands-on training in accounting fundamentals, bookkeeping and computerized accounting software such as Simply Accounting and Accpac. Graduates also meet the requirements for the CPA’s payroll certification programs. This combination of training prepares grads for a broader range of positions within the industry.

After graduation, Casubuan landed a job in the tax administration department with Loblaw’s. The position allows her to use the skills she acquired in school, as well as her past experience. Like most grads, she’s thrilled to be working while she makes plans for her future.
“It’s a great feeling to know that I am finally earning money in my desired profession,” she says. “I am committed to a career in accounting and payroll. And I want to get stronger, possibly by going for a CGA or CMA.”

CDI College is now accepting applications for the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program in Winnipeg. For more information, fill out the form on the right.
