The ICAI Articleship & Industrial Training Platform
The unique requirement of completion of practical training for three years for becoming a Chartered Accountant is instrumental in shaping a well-rounded professional to ensure that students have an opportunity to acquire on-the- job work experience of a professional nature.
It has been observed that many talented students fail to approach firms and miss the opportunity to undergo training in good/reputed articled firms/ Industrial Training in the fields of their interest on account of inadequate information. Likewise, there may be good firms/industry that are not able to get articles interested to join such firms/industry. So, Board of Studies has developed this portal with the intention of providing a platform both to (i) firms of Chartered Accountant (s) / Industry having vacancies for Articled Assistants to shortlist students and select through Interviews at their offices and to (ii) eligible students to post their profile and apply for the available trainings on the portal for selection by the Firms/ industry.
