ICS holds open day in Montreal

ICS Canada held an “open day” in Montreal on January 25th 2018. This was part of a regular global effort by ICS to reach out to prospective students and included events in over 25 locations all over the world. Two events were held in Montreal, one during the day to Transport & Logistics students at Champlain College, St Lambert Campus and one in the evening for the public at the office of the Shipping Federation of Canada.

A presentation was given on why students might consider a shipping career to begin with, followed by a discussion of why they might consider studying with ICS, the types of qualifications and the methods of study offered and various issues such as cost, duration, resources and support. Students were also guided through the ICS website, shown samples of ICS textbooks and past exams and provided with “Studying with ICS” brochures. The newly launched WISTA-ICS scholarships for members of the WISTA (Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association) were also mentioned!

ICS Canada Branch wishes to thank Champlain College and the Shipping Federation of Canada for hosting these events. For those who would have liked to attend but missed it, please look out for the next one. ICS tries to hold these open info nights twice a year. Meantime, prospective students are encouraged to contact ICS Canada Branch should they have any questions.
