its a course to qualify for associate membership of ICAI. The Course on General Management and Communication Skills (GMCS) is a 15 days full time compulsory course conducted by the Board of Studies at over 50 locations in India and Dubai. Students are eligible to join the GMCS Course after passing the PE-II examination and completing two years of practical training. It is suggested that the students should complete the GMCS course once they have completed two years of practical training so that they can apply the concepts and skills learned on the job during their final year of training and also avoid delay in membership enrolment due to difficulty in getting leave sanctioned or overseas postings, as except Dubai, there are no other overseas centers for completing the GMCS course. Details of the course syllabus, batch commencement dates at various centers etc. are available on our website: www.icai.org >students > courses >GMCS.

You can join it after passing your CA. But you will not be given your membership number unless you complete the course.
