Approved Training Employers

Approved Training Employers (ATEs) are organisations in which MICPA candidates can gain relevant practical experience – a prerequisite for membership admission. ATEs provide support to develop candidates undertaking the MICPA Programme primarily by assigning an experienced mentor to oversee the training and development needs of candidates.

ATEs provide sufficient study and examination leave to allow candidates to prepare for the Institute’s examinations. In addition, ATEs provide candidates with access to resources such as a library, professional journals and relevant online resources.

ATEs are broadly categorised into Approved Accounting Firms and Approved Training Organisations. Organisations based in Malaysia and outside of Malaysia may apply to become ATEs.
