What is CA Foundation?

This is the first stage of the CA curriculum wherein only working knowledge of core and allied subjects to accountancy profession is covered. The unique feature of the entire theoretical education of the CA curriculum is the supportive and complementary practical training. A student would undergo theoretical education and three years of practical training compulsorily during the course of  CA. This balanced approach will help the students to appreciate the underlying practical applications of the theoretical education scheme.

In order to develop a strong theoretical base, students of Intermediate Course (CA Inter) who have registered through Foundation Course route or Intermediate level examination passed students of The Institute of Cost Accountants of India or The Institute of Company Secretaries of India, are required to undergo eight months study course before appearing for the first time in the Intermediate Examination. Since proper understanding of the modern world necessitates knowledge of present day technology and skills, students are imparted Four Weeks Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft Skills (ICITSS) before joining for the practical training. It is to be noted that such students can join practical training only after passing either or both Groups of Intermediate Course.
