CHAPTER ONE

1.0     It has been thirty-nine years since the first group of professionally qualified accountants came into existence in Nigeria under the name “the association of accountants in Nigeria” this association was absorbed by our institute created by an act of parliament No 15 of 1956 which came into force on 1st of September 1965. the institute has over 17,000 member and 90,000 student on its register presently.

The institute of chartered accountant of Nigeria  (ICAN) is the only professional accountancy body in Nigeria and its qualification which allows it members to call themselves chartered accountant is recognized around the world as a prestigious business qualification.

The institute has a laid down of the duties and objective such as to determine what standards of knowledge  and still are to be affirmed by person seeking to become member of the accountancy profession and  rising those standards form time to time as circumstance may permit to ensure that they meet international standards to secure in accordance with the pension of the act. The establishment and maintenance of fellows associates and registered accountants entitled to practice as accountants and auditors and public form time to time lists of those persons. Also to perform through the council of the institute all other function conferred on it by the act.

In other to determine standard the ruling I governing body of the institute called the council set out subject which are considered essential and which must be thoroughly assimilated by any prospective member.

To test a through group of this subject it involves level one level two the intermediate level final level part one and final level part two. The examination procedure later changes to foundation examination professional examination I(P.EI) professional exanimation II (PEII) and professional examination III (P.EIII) Now it has been changed to foundation I foundation 2 intermediate professional examination I and professional examination II

On the issue of obtaining the skill or practice if was formally required that a prospective matter enter into an articles of clerkship with principal in a public practice or work as an approved student under an accountant in public practice.  However the need for adequate supervisor led to the introduction of the recognized training center (RTC) such as companies have training facilities and all  firms of practicing accountant with at least one full-time practitioner.

This policy has sometime relaxed for now as more and more institute are awarded recognized training center in status.

Further the institute in now generally believed to be playing a positive and direct role in the training of future accountants considering the numerous achievement  attributed to them such as the creation of second tier  membership (accounting techniques) to cater for the middle cadre level.
