Thanks so much again for all the help and resources during the process.  It was a huge help.  Couldn't have done it without PASS.

Do not get lost with different type of resources. There is a lot out there. PASS resources are all what you need to pass this exam.

J. Hussain

I thank you and Michael for your continued guidance, support and prompt responses to any quesions I ever had.  Your targeted approach, attention to detail, focus on practice and guidance to weigh assessment areas has enabled me to successfully write these exams.  I would have passed last time but I deviated from approach on Day 2 which resulted in a failing grade for Financial Reporting as I missed out on assessment areas and over emphasized on low information areas.  a lesson learned the hard way!

PASS remains my top recommendation for all CFE writers I come across.

A. Modesti

Thank you for your support leading up to the CFE. The PASS program was a sure aid in my success on the CFE.  I found it very helpful that the comprehensive course provided the methods to tackle the cases in a systematic way. I also appreciated being able to ask questions in the online classes and have you answer questions I had.

R. Fejdasz

I want to thank you both for the wonderful lessons you have both taught me in preparation for the CFE.  They helped a lot and played a huge factor in me passing the exam.

E. Lauterpacht

I definitely could not have
done it without your help.

N. Lema

Repeat Writer - Just a short note to thank you for your help this year.  As you are aware, I did the CFE Day 2/3 this year again (as a repeat writer)The technical review and practice I did through PASS gave me the boost I needed.  I passed the CFE!!! I am over the moon right now and your program helped me to get here!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

U. Emad

I successfully passed the CFE on my first attempt. We received an abundance of resources from the PASS program designed and carried out by you and Michael. which I really think made all the difference since not every CPA candidate has the same luxury or resources provided by their firms. I think these tools were critical to my success.

D. Nayyar

thank you so much for support in providing me excellent materials to help me PASS the CFE this year!

M. Goldreich

Thank you for your well organized and practical set of courses which helped me pass all the CPA exams on the first shot!

R. Jatania

I want to thank you for all the support and resources from Core 1 up to the CFE.  This would not have been possible without the help fo your amazing program designed to succeed.

U. Farooqi

I'm happy to report that I passed the CFE! The CFE comprehensive course was instrumental to my success. Specifically, the  Audit lecture helped me learn how to approach each possible scenario in the CFE and the Financial Accounting lecture helped me reach depth by reminding me to tie case facts to each technical point I raised. Thank you so much for your flexibility and the program you've put together.

E. Zhu

I am writing to you to say nothing but thank you, for all your help and support provided during your 5 day training session and your study materials.  I successfully passed the CFE this year!  Your teaching and guidance were many times far superior than what the Diploma Program (in Toronto) provided.

M. Murphy

I was very happy with the courses you offered for both the challenge exams and the final (CFE)!

L. Jinxiu

The courses you provided to me were definitely really helpful and instructive for me, so I just wanted to share my happiness with you and thanks for your great help on the writing skills and accounting techniques on the CFE.

A. Hassan

I joined the CPA program as a legacy CGA student at the Electives stage with little idea of transitioning onto CA-type skills in case writing.  Ira was very helpful in guiding me through the technical material which gave me a solid ground on with to start my preparation.  I kept in touch with Ira through the CFE and he again helped my by providing some demystifying material on teh brand new standards, Financial Instruments and Revenue.  although the success of CFE depends largely on persisten rigou of timed case writing, the courses at PASS provided a valuable impetus towards that goal.

I. Kolar

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent CFE case writing course you provided and the technical notes summarizing ASPE and IFRS differences. Both went a long way in preparing me for the exam and helping me pass. Keep up the good work

D. Saraf

I just wanted to say another thank you for the CFE prep program, I passed the CFE.

Key to success is knowing the right techniques to win the game and PASS knows what they are!

PASS Students who Took CFE Courses - Indian and Other International Students

J. Zaman

I would like to thank PASS for all their efforts and hard work that goes into making sure that your students pass CPA exams. It would not have been possible without all the technical as well as personal advice from PASS. Special thanks for helping us new immigrants with your free information sessions and special programs for internationally qualified CAs that helped a lot. You go well above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate your students.

M. Dhawan

PASS course has best technical material especially videos and live sessions.  Ira and Michael have provided tremendous guidance on case writing approach which is most important while writing CFE.  Passion for teaching student truly reflect in their work.  I want to thank PASS team and recommend every student to take up PASS course to pass CPA.

T. Sarker

I enrolled in PASS CFE Indian and Other International CA's in November after doing a great deal of research, as I had been looking for a comprehensive programme that would provide both technical knowledge and case writing techniques. 

I now realize that this was the best decision that I have ever made, and without your guidance and support I would never be able to write my CFE successfully. 

Thank you for your kindness and being such amazing mentors.

R. Sharma

I wanted to inform you that I have successfully cleared CFE. This is all because of your guidance, coaching and support. 

I cannot thank you guys enough for your invaluable contribution in my success.

T. Jain

Best institute for CFE..! Highly recommended..!! Guidance and support received from Ira and Michael and their markers team was excellent, which helped me clear CFE in my first attempt..!

J. Ajith

I'm glad that I made the right choice by choosing the PASS CFE course.

A. Rathore

I would like to thank both Ira and Michael for their untiring guidance and their extremely useful tips that ultimately helped me to pass the CFE.

A. Sadruddin

It is with great pleasure I wish to inform that I passed my CFE 2019.  I am thankful to both of you because it was due to your notes/webinars I was also to understand the whole process of CFE specifically the case writing aspect because as being international accountant we never experienced it.

D. Ghai

Excellent is the word for the PASS team and especially Michael and Ira. 

I took the CFE program for International CA's from PASS and the result is that I am a CPA (in the very first attempt). I was very nervous and hesitant in appearing for my CFE as the course material and the exam pattern is totally different from what we have been doing in the past (in our home country) but trust me the guidance and teachings from the PASS team were exceptional and helped me to prepare for my CFE with ease. 

Their practice material and guidebooks are enough so that you don't have to study anything else apart from that. 

Their class schedule is very flexible and you have online access to watch the class videos in case you missed any live class. 

I would highly recommend all the aspiring CPA's to enroll with PASS for their CFE preps. 

Thank you once again Michael and Ira.

L. Pai

I think the best decision was to enroll for PASS as soon as I moved to Canada as they start making us write cases very early on. 

 Even when I didn’t know how to write the same, the format etc. it just puts you in the habit of writing cases. 

The lectures can be watched anytime, if you miss it. Ira has always been a msg/phone call away especially when I had my doubts towards the exams, I used to make a list and get in touch with him and he always ensured he answered it all. 

 Being the first in my circle to do CPA Canada, with no prior guidance as such, PASS definitely helped me choose the right path by explaining how it works. Any changes or updates would always be emailed to all the PASS students like DAIS notes were really helpful.

A. Lahiri

I passed CFE (both Day 1 and 2/3).  The training and material provided by PASS was of immense help.  Thanks to both of you.

P. Gajjar

I just want to thank you for your guidance throughout international CFE preparation program, incredible material and marking techniques that helped me to pass CPA in first attempt.  I am very happy for the course you offered.

R. Verma

After my previous unsuccessful attempt for CFE, I was successful.  Thank you for your help, as I can now proudly say, India CA and Canadian CPA!  Studying after 14-15 years into my first designation was not easy but with support from family , guidance from teachers and mentors was a differentiating factor.

D. Gupta

Thank you so much for being such wonderful teachers!

M. Upadhya

I once again want to thank both you and Michael for all the help in preparing for the exam.  

There were instances where while I was attempting an answer, I could recollect your explanations on the issue that I had watched in the video.

I feel I did justice to the attempt purely because of all the help I received from PASS.

I have benefitted tremendously from the video and live classes as well as from helpful inputs provided by case markers for my case submissions.

Thank you once again for everything you have done to guide me through this.

M. Iftikhar

I just wanted to place on record my appreciation for the support that you guys have granted me during the whole preparation process.  I couldn't have done this without you.

E. Sheth

Thank you for the guidance and support.  The case writing techniques taught by PASS were of great help to me and also Day 1 case writing lecture was very useful.

A. Waqas

I would like to express immense gratitude for your (Ira and Michael) expert support and the immense flexibility you lent me in paying my duesI passed the CFE thanks to the friendly experts of PASS!

D. Chotrani

As a qualified CA from India and working in a full time senior management role in the industry, it was difficult to get my CPA CFE preparations started after a long gap away from studying. After getting in touch with many run of the mill centers that just hand you their course materials, I got in touch with Ira who counseled me on the best way to prepare and I decided to join PASS’ program for Indian CAs that catered to my needs. Unlike the CA program from India, the CPA CFE requires use of case writing with technical skills and strategic elements that demands extensive preparation. PASS’ material, live online classes (with VoD), mock tests, case marking and one-on-one counseling from case markers was extremely useful in CFE exam preparation. I would recommend PASS program for Indian CAs to help them schedule their preparation and be CFE ready.

B. Chauhan

Thank you for your guidance and support - I sailed through the Sept. CFE!

S. Goyal

I wanted to thank you and Michael for all the guidance and support you have provided during the course I took with PASS.

S. Govindaprasad

I am excited to be a designated accountant in two countries, Canada and India.  Looking back at the last 8 months, I owe my success ultimately to my every supportive family, to my tutors Ira Walfish and Michael Levi of PASS for being super teachers, to my mentors and to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India - Toronto.

M. Mehta

Just wanted to thank you for everything, your material really helped me.  Thank you so much for your guidance.

H. Arshad

Reliable and focused study materials along with flexibility of PASS's management with my busy schedule helped me get my CPA.  The marker's feedback was also aimed at identifying any weak areas and on improving my case writing skills.

A. Pathak

Ira and Michael from PASS played a significant role in the beginning of CPA journey, both reintroduced the concepts and explained the case writing techniques to pass CFE.  Study material provided has sufficient theory to understand concepts easily and clear any confusions.  The experience of number of years is reflected in the classes, lectures and webinars.  Thanks to both of you.

D. Bhavin

I credit most of my success to outstanding study materials and quality live instructions by Michael and Ira.  Thank you PASS for helping turn my ambitious goal into a startling reality.

S. Fazal

Thank you Ira and Michael (PASS) for your guidance, that helped me pass the CFE in my first attempt. The targeted approach to the exam, made it a lot easier for me to get through the CFE. The study material and in class lectures were of immense help to get command over Case Writing for this level.


G. Kaur

PASS helped me to develop the right approach to tackle a case.  Overall, no important topic was left untouched, with the dedicated technical briefing classes.  Thanks for your contribution to my success.

D. Mehta

I am delighted to announce that I cleared the CFE and became a CPA in the first attempt which is a proud moment for anyone. Being a CA from outside Canada (India), it was difficult for me to get used to the way one prepares for CPA. I came across PASS where they have a customized study program for candidates like me and a flexible study program for candidates who are working.

A. Gadagi

The lectures provided by Ira and Michael are really helpful and cover all topics. The best part is - the classes are recorded so you can always go back and refer to the points. The Pass lectures, case writing and markers feedback really helped me improve my case writing and I'm glad to share that I cleared CFE Day 1 and Day2/3. Thanks a ton Ira and Michael for your guidance, highly recommend your case writing techniques and markers feedback.

Thank you to you and Michael once again for all the support and guidance.

P. Langote

Thank you Ira and Michael for all your guidance and help.  It truly means a lot.

S. Simon

I passed my CFE (Sep 22) with PASS help.... Been a newcomer to Canada and planning to write the CPA CFE exam within a year I was worried where, when and how to start... the PASS team really helped me to easily understand the process... being a full time employee I couldn't attend their live online classes... but every classes was recorded and made available the next day... this provided much flexibility... they provided experts to review our mock exams and provided much useful inputs to prepare for the main exam... thank you Ira and Michael for your guidance and encouragement....

S. Agarwal

PASS is an awesome resource for CFE. The classes and the technical guidance helped me a lot to get my CFE in first attempt.

S. Shaikh

PASS is the finest school for students looking to successfully write their CFE. Both Michael and Ira work diligently to put together the most relevant reading material in their binder which you get as a student. They choose the case studies very carefully to test their students on all the topics in every subject. They are very approachable outside the class time and ready to provide you guidance on everything related to CPA - which elective roles to choose, where to find past cases, etc.

I would also recommend to get the cases marked by their panel of examiners and go for the counselling which is invaluable. The examiners are also very helpful and provide real-life example towards approaching case writing.

I recommend PASS for all students who want to succeed in their first attempt.

PASS Students who Took the PEP Module Exam Courses OR Used PASS Resources for PEP

A. Nagi

Overall the PASS learning system was fantastic.  It prepared me well for the 4 PEP Module Exams while giving me the flexibility to learn and review at my own pace and to focus on what I needed to most.

T. Tang

I just wanted to say WOW!  The material is amazing on how it presents just the important technical and explains it in an easy to understand and follow format.  I am rewriting my flash cards right now based on the PASS material.  I wish I had just studied using PASS since day one and I could've been multiple times more effective with my use of time.

M. Tablang

I just found out I passed Core 1 - thank you for your awesome videosIt was my 3rd attempt at Core 1.  I had a hard time understanding and retaining the notes from Knotia on my own.  Your videos helped me so much with understanding the logic behind the rules, especially financial reporting.  I found your mock exams harder than the actual exam which I think helped me prepare even further.  I'm so glad I bought PASS!

C. Demers

I personally feel that the way that the class was structured really helped me. Videos were really entertaining, and Multiple choices really useful.

N. Azanin

I have passed Core 2 and I'm so happy I did use PASS.  The videos in Core 2 were the best as I'm a visual person.

T. Hope

The videos and the practice questions really helped me cope with the module better and I definitely know who I will turn in future for help with these CPA PEP courses

A. Sabalis

The pass program has been amazing in helping me prep for challenging my Core 2 exam.  PASS has been great!

A. Hassan

I wanted to thank you for the management accounting notes as they really helped me during the CFE technical brush up.

P. Driscoll

Just wanted to thank you for the Core 1 module materials. I passed the Core 1 exam "with distinction" in the top 5% of writers. 

I could not have got anywhere near that result without the PASS courses.

You guys really have great material.

Now onto Core 2!

M. Colacci

The overall quality of the course was fantastic and the binder is extremely helpful.  I found that as long as you familiarized yourself with the material prior to the class, the pace of the class was perfect; it moved quick enough that I didn't get bored but not so fast that I felt lost.

R. Chan

PASS's notes were very helpful in passing my exams. The notes and videos are very easy to understand, and the practice questions/cases served as a great primer for the exams.

M. Kaminskyj

Just wanted to thank you again for providing an amazing crash course for the CPA PEP Module Exams. I learned last week that I was successful in my first attempt at the tax and assurance exams! Don't think I would have done as well had I just studied on my own with my own material.

V. Vive

You guys have done a phenomenal job with the course as I scored very well on the Core 1 and Tax modules. Your notes are very comprehensive and the mock exams were a lot more difficult than the actual exam, which made me well prepared.

R. Mangat

Thank you so much for your course materials, content and coming to Ryerson a couple years ago and sharing your insights on how many exams to challenge and in what order. I've passed all four in the spring and summer and could not have done it without you. 

N. Haque

The PASS courses were an incredible supplement to my self-study plan. I was able to ask any questions in class that I stumbled upon while studying by myself, which really helped. I felt fully prepared before the challenge exams!

R. Wong

Your study material really helped - I passed my Core 2

M. D'Souza

Very useful.  Good enough material to help you pass the challenge exams.

D. Kurisko

PASS has been very helpful for my previous Core 1 and Tax PEP Module Exams - thank you for what PASS does.

B. Lock

I passed both Core 2 and Assurance from the December sitting. Passed with distinction (whatever that means) thanks to your content!

C. Mahon

I just wanted to say thanks for some great course material and interesting lectures.  I was able to "PASS" all of my challenge exams the first time around.  I give a lot of credit to the PASS program and have recommended it to friends who are/will be writing.

L. Philips

I just wanted to let you know that I passed my tax exam on my second attempt and it is almost all thanks to your program. All of the technical notes as well as the session notes were an excellent practical approach which helped me organize the topics in my head going into the exam.

V. Granova

I highly recommend PASS - their smoothly structured and highly interactive Challenge Exam program and study materials guaranteed my success with the exams. The instructors are knowledgeable and offer constructive and personalized feedback which greatly benefits the process."

M. Sinha

I passed my Tax Elective and just wanted to thank you for that! Your materials were great and I recommend it to all my friends who will be sitting for their CPA.

V. Sridhar

Thanks again for offering these sessions.  They were extremely helpful and I'm very glad to have gone through them.

M. Sinha

Thank you for all your help and awesome practice materials and lectures.

A. Sabeeh

I'm just writing to say thanks and express my appreciation for your CPA pass program. I just passed my fourth challenge exam and just wanted to say thank you to you and Michael for your well devised notes and videos, they were extremely helpful in my preparation for each challenge exam, I honestly don't know how I would have prepped without them.

L. Mascall

I wanted to thank you both for the great videos and material provided, they were a great help in passing the Core 1 and Assurance exams!

M. Di Donato

I was thoroughly impressed with PASS and definitely owe a lot of my success to the materials provided, especially the lectures. I found your videos that share realistic exam views and scenarios to be the most beneficial. The approach taken by PASS in regards to important topics and not getting hung up on things (like pensions) was extremely useful and reassuring.

You and Michael were extremely helpful, there are numerous occasions where I sent emails at 12 and 1am and received responses almost instantly.

I put my faith in your judgement.

PASS works if you dedicate the time and follow the guidance of Michael and yourself.

Thanks for your help, (and for the awesome core 1 and 2 prep materials)

Former Medalists

S. Hadley

Canadian Gold Medalist

The PASS courses were a very important part of my studies and helped me achieve my success. The instructors were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, encouraging and were always willing to answer any questions I had. The tips provided by the instructors were invaluable to me. I found this to be an excellent program.

K. Johnston

Canadian Gold Medalist

I really enjoyed the PASS Course approach to planning. Other courses I took also emphasized planning, but Ira and Michael were really able to show how planning should be properly done.  The proprietary answer guides from PASS which concretely showed what was required for competent were very valuable. It was nice to have objectivity in marking instead of the vague guides provided by the institute. The handout materials were great references to go back to as they were completely comprehensive.

S. Bandura

Canadian Bronze Medalist

I found the PASS course very helpful in my preparation for the exam. The markers of the practice cases provided relevant feedback and enabled me to hone my case writing skills. I found the in-class debriefing and commentary provided a fresh perspective on case writing. The instructors were very experienced and took an active interest in the students. They could be counted on to respond to any questions about the exam or study techniques.

P. Andersen

Ontario Silver Medalist

PASS focuses on what is important. The course helped me to develop an extremely concise writing style and also provided an excellent foundation for continued improvement right up to the exam.

L. Durocher

Ontario Gold Medalist

I think that the information given throughout the sessions about what to expect on the exam was really valuable in feeling comfortable and confident.

PASS Students who Wrote the Trustee in Bankruptcy Exam

A. Morataya

I took your exam writing course this summer (just attended the two days of exam writing). I was seeking exam training that could be applied to the Trustee in Bankruptcy examination (the CNIE).

My exam was at the end of October. And I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you, because I truly found the exam writing techniques helpful. And I was successful in the exam this year.
