I don't know if it's a "written rule" at the firms, but I haven't seen anyone make manager in TAS/FDD without having their CPA. Most people that enter the groups are coming in with their CPA, since the groups are known to be somewhat competitive to get into. People need to differentiate themselves from the other auditors that are trying to escape audit, and the CPA is a really good way to do that.
