ICS Ireland
Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (Ireland) 2015 -2016 Courses
by ICS Ireland

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (Ireland) is pleased to offer the following Courses in Dublin City University:




These courses are accredited by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers in London. They are suitable for all those involved in the world of shipping e.g. liner trades, port agency, transport, freight forwarding, port operations and shipping finance. The Foundation Diploma is principally intended for those new to the Industry.

The Advanced Diploma is intended for those who have some basic knowledge of shipping but who feel at the initial stage that the PQE is too much for them to undertake. The Professional Qualifying Examinations are undertaken by those who wish to become Members of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers.

The Foundation Diploma Course covers Introduction to Shipping and a choice of Port Agency or Liner Trades whilst the Advanced Diploma covers Shipping Business and either Port Agency or Liner Trades. Those who wish to take the Professional Qualifying Examinations can take Economics of Sea Transport and Legal Principles in Shipping Business as part of their qualification.
