Requirements of an Indiana CPA license include passing the Uniform CPA Examination and having two years of full-time accounting employment. The Uniform CPA Examination measures professional competence and helps to establish the CPA license as evidence of professional qualification. The examination is a 14 hour computer-based test with four sections: Auditing & Attestation, Financial Accounting & Reporting, Regulation, and Business Environment & Concepts.
