CPE stands for Continuing Professional Education. The ICAI has been providing continuous  inputs to its members through seminars, lectures, workshops, technical literature, e-learning, web-based training etc. which are known as CPE. Here I have enlightened on how many CPE hours a CA needs to complete in each year and in 3 year’s block.
