TutorShip is the Institute's own distance learning programme. TutorShip provides not only the preparation necessary for ICS examinations but also gives students the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the industry and develop career potential.

All our tutors, worldwide, are approved by the Institute's Head Office in London and they are specialists in their field.

Some DLCs also organise other training courses, revision events and seminars for students and members. Contact your local DLC or branch for more local information.
