"The course materials were very easy to work through and clearly set out. Whenever I needed to speak to someone at ICS, I received good information and all the support I needed throughout my course. I would definitely recommend ICS - in fact I already have and I hope to take another course in the near future" Clare Bottomley, ICS Graduate, Surrey
