In addition the students are also required to undergo 3 Month practical training. The practical training is however exempted for students who have undergone 15 months training in a company or under a Company Secretary in Practice.
During the training period efforts are made to develop managerial abilities with emphasis on legal/secretarial/finance areas and to build commercial orientation, problem solving approach and insight into the emerging business environment and to provide extensive practical exposure of various functions which a Company Secretary is required to perform.
Most importantly, stress is laid on building self confidence in the trainees to enable them to deal with routine as well as crisis situations without undue dependence on external help.
