Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers director Alan Phillips sends us the following comment:
"As the professional body to commercial shipping, the ICS adheres to the 3 R's – Respect, Relevance and Robustness. Although celebrating its Centenary in 2011, it seeks to maintain the respect of today's shipping industry, while being relevant to the demands of the profession worldwide. Its examinations are a robust challenge to all students seeking to develop their careers."
The results of the 2010 ICS professional qualifying examinations will be published on www.ics.org.uk on 6 August.
