Thus from 1st February, 2012 M/s Sify has been the sole testing authority to judge Computer knowledge profeciency for the ICSI and M/s Aptech has been recognized to provide computer training only.
The students are now free to undergo computer training from any Institute including that of M/S Aptech.
Please note that the Aptech is not authorised for conducting online exemption test from 1st February 2012.

They are required to enroll for an online exemption test at SIFY and pass the same. The jointly signed certificate will be issued by SIFY on clearing the test.
The students who had taken admission at Aptech for computer training before 1st February 2012 may get the jointly signed certificate(by ICSI and Aptech) from Aptech. In case of any issues in getting the jointly signed certificate from Aptech, they may send their complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the documentary proof of admission with Aptech, passing the test from Aptech etc.
