ICAI president G Ramaswamy told the media on Saturday that students who have completed two years of graduation can directly appear for Intermediate Proficiency Competency Course (IPCC) - which is the final step in becoming a CA - after doing apprenticeship. Even those students who have not appeared for Std XII exam but have done a diploma and a vocational course followed by two years of graduation also need not appear for CPT.

Presently, application forms for enrolling for CPT course are available at five certified registration centres (CRCs) in India. In order to facilitate students, the ICAI has decided to launch online CPT registration facility through CRCs where students across the country can register themselves for the CPT course by simply walking into the local ICAI office and pay the fee online (through credit or debit card).
