A major provider of education and training


As a major provider of education and training, the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) sets and examines the syllabus for membership, providing the shipping industry with highly qualified professionals.

ICS is the only internationally recognised professional body in the maritime arena and it represents shipbrokers, ship managers and agents throughout the world.

With 24 branches in key shipping areas, 3,500 individuals and 120 company members, the Institute's membership represents a commitment to maintaining the highest professional standards across the shipping industry.

Founded in 1911, the Institute was awarded a Royal Charter in 1920.  The Charter was amended in 1984 to open the membership to companies and non-British subjects.  As a result, the Institute is now truly international and provides a great deal of opportunity for networking.

ICS operates its own distance learning programme, TutorShip, and runs a variety of courses designed for both new entrants to the shipping industry and more experienced people looking for specialised knowledge.  TutorShip courses are offered in 16 Distance Learning Centres run by the Institute around the world.
