Old post about IT Training for IPCC relevant for period before January 24, 2014
Me and My counselling staff also noted that students suffer from various confusions regarding registration and IT training requirement of CA IPCC course.
Submit a certified copy of your TYB Com Hall ticket
Certification by a Practicing Chartered Accountant, or by your School or College Principal or by a Gazetted Officer is acceptable to ICAI
Registration with Thane branch or WIRC Office has same effect. As a precaution, I would recommend you to ask the availability of study material with Thane Branch before submitting your Form there. If the study material is available there, it is advisable to register with Thane Branch.

You can take IT Training anywhere in India from the training Centers started by ICAI
Check these FAQs given by ICAI at the bottom of this page.
Don't panic. You can get IT training from any other place also, such as Dadar, Ghatkopar, Navi Mumbai etc. You can get the phone numbers of these It Training Centers at Thane Branch.
Or else, you can also send an email to the Chairman and Secretary of Thane Branch explaining your problem and requesting help from them. It would be helpful if email is also sent to Chairman of WICASA.
IT Training must be done before joining articleship. Although, GMCS course can be done before joining or during continuation of your articleship, I would recommend you to do it before joining articleship.
Still have some more doubts?
All the best,
