My CA prelim credential is set to expire at the end of the year. As of now, I still don't have a job set that will send me through BTSA to clear the credential. In looking at the info that I have from the CTC website, it looks as if: A three year extension can be granted once. Beyond that, a two year extension can be granted if one is employed but unable to complete BTSA within that time. Thirdly, a one-year extension can be granted once in order to complete BTSA. By my calculations, this means that I must find full-time employment and begin BTSA no later than four years from now. Truthfully, I'm going to have to find an alternative soon if this doesn't work out anyway. Am I correct on this though? You basically have eight years, because the final three years of extensions are only granted if you are in full time employment doing BTSA?
