ICS Tutorship Students – Testing of Online Tutorials

The Institute is continually looking at ways to improve the support to Tutorship students to enrich their learning experience.

For the upcoming exams scheduled for May, the Institute is launching a series of online tutorials led by our expert tutors.  At this time, these tutorials are in the testing phase but should they hold positive results, it will only be a matter of time before it is rolled out to all Tutorship students internationally.

The format will be one hour of presentations by the tutor followed by Q&A for the second hour and the delivery platform will be ‘GotoTraining’.

In order to ensure relevance and enable the widest participation, the topics have been carefully selected as shipping industry fundamentals which are meaningful across more than one examination subject.

For interests sake, below is the list of tutorials currently being tested:

Ship types and ship drawings           

Contract of sale: the contract of carriage; parties and key terms              

Maritime geography and trade routes      

Basic economics – supply & demand and economies of scale     

Preparing for exams, revision techniques 

Contract Law  


Bills of Lading     

Basic business accounting and company structures              

Types of charter parties – bareboat, time and voyage                    

Preparing for exams, exam techniques       


We will report back on the outcome of the testing.
