The Advanced Diploma has been designed as a stepping stone into full professional qualification and suits those who have some industry knowledge.
Like the Foundation Diploma, the Advanced Diploma is a recognised and respected qualification and it can count towards your Professional Qualifying Examinations. It involves taking the Institute’s benchmark paper Shipping Business plus one other subject from Group 2 list of optional from the Institute’s syllabus. The Advanced Diploma is awarded if both subjects are passed in the same exam sitting
The ICS Advanced Diploma is a combination of Shipping Business plus a Group 2 subject from the ICS PQE syllabus. If only one paper is passed then that paper is taken forward as part of the PQE process. In effect candidates sitting the Advanced Diploma only have to sit 2 examinations in their first year. This aligns with those sitting Foundation Diploma.
