    Is articleship compulsory for cs?

    1. cakart says:

      Well article ship is required to get degree and become member of ICSI, you need to go through any of these trainings depending upon your level

      Three years on registration to Executive Programme;


      Two years after passing the Executive Programme;


      One year after passing the Professional Programme.

      Institute has made it quite clear that training is part of course and not optional. So there is no way to skip training.

  2. Supriya says:

    Is it beneficial to do a CS articleship after an executive, or will it be fine after the professionals?

  3. Malini says:

    Is it beneficial to do a CS articleship after an executive, or will it be fine after the professionals?

    1. cakart says:

      ICSI provides you the following options for Articleship under the Revised Syllabus:

      After Foundation, 3 years
      After Executive, 2 years
      After Professional, 1 year

      As per my opinion, once you start working, it would be difficult to dedicate time for studies. i would strongly recommend starting articleship after Professional.

  4. sankalp says:

    Where should I do my CS articleship as a trainee?

    1. cakart says:

      It depends upon your choice of interest, a listed company or a stock exchange is more preferable than a firm.

  5. Akshay Balkrishna Gajjar says:

    It is compulsory to complete 15 day training for joining articleship after executive programme.
