About CPE Directorate

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India has always been striving for excellence in terms of standards of professional services rendered by its members.With a view to enabling its members to maintain the requisite professional competence and thus ensure high quality and standards in the professional services that they render, the ICAI has identified Continuing Professional Education (CPE) as a major area of focus for the members. Thus, the ICAI, through its Continuing Professional Education Committee, has been providing continued inputs to its members through seminars, lectures, workshops, technical literature, e-learning, web-based training etc. In the year 2003 the ICAI had issued the Statement on Continuing Professional Education prescribing the norms for undergoing CPE activities by the members and the mechanism to implement the same by POUs.

The Continuing Professional Education Committee (CPE) is a non-standing Committee of the Council of the ICAI entrusted with the task of setting strategic directions and overseeing CPE activities of POUs, members, etc under the directions of the Council.
