Advanced Defined Benefit Plans Audit Certificate Exam

The Advanced Defined Benefit Plans Audit Certificate exam tests your ability to plan, perform and evaluate defined benefit plans, in accordance with AICPA standards and DOL rules and regulations. This exam is offered in a timed online format and consists of 75 multiple choice questions. In order to successfully pass the examination, you must be able to evaluate and analyze the core concepts related to client acceptance, engagement planning, engagement analysis, concluding an engagement and guiding principles for defined benefit plan audits.

When you pass the exam, you will be awarded with a certificate in the form of a digital badge. Digital badges allow you to distinguish yourself in the marketplace and show your commitment to quality. The badge can be posted to your social media profiles and linked to your resume or email signature, providing maximum visibility to your achievement.

Important note: Each exam purchase entitles you to one exam (first attempt) and one re-take (second attempt) if you do not pass the first attempt. Prior to accessing the re-take, the AICPA recommends you study any topics identified in your first attempt exam results. If you do not pass either the first or second attempt, you must purchase two more attempts. Exams passed outside of these purchase and re-take rules will not result in the issuing of a digital badge. If you have any questions regarding the completion of any of your exam attempts, please contact digitalbadge@aicpa.org to verify your results.
