CAPPA Oil and Gas Production Accounting


Available: Continuing Education Classroom or Online

Program Description

Developed in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Production Accounting (CAPPA), this program provides students with a thorough knowledge of petroleum products in addition to an understanding of the industry's financial practices and government regulations. As of Sep. 1, 2015, all students beginning the CAPPA program are required by CAPPA to complete a basic Financial Accounting course prior to entry into Level 4 of the CAPPA program. SAIT's OGPA 201 Financial Accounting for Production Accountants, meets this requirement (see Professional Development Courses) to register. Basic Financial Accounting Courses from other institutions can be considered. It is also strongly recommended that all students take an MS Excel course before starting this program.For more information, please contact 403.284.8818 or ogpa@sait.ca.
