As far as I know CPT is granted by school officials rather than USCIS.
AN E-VERIFY EMPLOYER MUST RUN STUDENTS ON CURRICULAR PRACTICAL TRAINING through E-Verify system. But Never read or seen this kind of situation.

Curricular Practical Training guidelines

Curricular practical training is defined to be alternative work/study, internship, cooperative education, or any other type of required internship or practicum that is offered by sponsoring employers through cooperative agreements with the school.
