The course books are not textbooks and Look like they were put together by children. Never could get ahold of anyone for help. I started doing more research and came to the conclusion that their no more than a rubbish company. It may be a cheap way to go, start asking yourself why?. Research ask lots of questions and get the answers before you buy. Repeatedly harassed by them calling for money ( their fake collection agency). (read more)

ICS Canada is great for expanding your knowledge of things you are inerested in, but no school or university will accept it for credit towards that course you want. For example, the pharmacy assistant course is NOT a pharmacy tech. In Canada, you need to take a recognized course through a real college, plus do many hours of practicum and then take a final exam to get your diploma. I took the fitness and nutrition course but that doesn't make me a nutritionist or fitness instructor. In order... (read more)

I enrolled at ICS because of the cheap tuition and when we said online studying meaning we can do this in our time. but this one is different, my available time to study is sunday and yes, they are closed every sunday, due to renovation it said, they do not tell that to you when you are enrolling, yoou will only discover that when you are already enrolled. As far as the study materials is involved,they are very outdated. When you have problems and email ICS or student service, they will... (read more)

I enrolled in the ICS Photography course and started the material online. The hardcopy material did not arrive until much later after the initial date I signed up. I quickly discovered that the course material was extermely outdated. I enrolled in a photography course in 2011 but the material was obviously written in the 1970's. There was no mention of digital cameras or computers at all. The cameras they used in the material was an old manual rewind one!!!!What- unbelievable!!!I think the... (read more)

After reading a good chunk of the reviews on here I have come to the conclusion we all are talking about two different schools. There's ICS Canada http://www.icslearn.ca/ who I am currently enrolled in and give THEM a 5 star rating and then there's ICS UK http://www.icslearn.co.uk/ which I am starting to think that they are two completely different companies.

I am just in the last week of completing my Legal Assistant Program and my whole experience with ICS Canada was excellent! The materials got sent out very promptly, so I was never sitting without anything to do. They had the projects and modules very well laid out so there was never a time when I felt totally overwhelmed with all of the assignments I had to do. I sent several emails for support from the school, and I always received a reply via email or phone within 24 hours (except of... (read more)

I just finished the Animal sciences course with a 91%. I am very happy with the course and I plan on taking another dealing with business management. It is so worth the money, considering you get everything you need delivered right to your doorstep (textbooks and materials/aids), and you can't beat the around the clock tutoring. I had some problems concerning some of my work (I was very stuck, lol)and my instructor was so helpful-she walked me through it and got me on my way, just like going... (read more)

I would not recommend taking a program through ICS Canada. I recently took the Legal Assistant/Paralegal diploma program. The course materials were so outdated (much of it from the 1990's) and innacurate, and hardly pertained to Canadian Laws. I was luckily hired as a receptionist at a law firm while attending ICS, otherwise I wouldn't have had a chance of entering into the legal field, as no lawyer I have talked to even recognizes the school/my diploma. While ICS may seem like a great deal... (read more)

I recently completed the Lagal Assistant course through ICS canada. I was very pleased with the amount of support that was given to me. My assignments and exams were marked by the next day and, everytime I called, there was someone there to speak with me. I would recommend ICS to anyone who works better alone rather then in a classroom environment.
I was looking through the other reviews and, was shocked that people had negative things to say. My opinion is that you will never know until you... (read more)

I have been very pleased with my program from ICS Canada. Teachers Assistant. My shipment is delivered on time, the student services are very helpful, and most of all the course is very informative. The books were easy to follow
and they touch base with everything in the teaching field. I only have positive things to say about ICS Canada.

Bought into the locksmith course, material was about 10-15 years old... completely outdated. The materials they sent as well were of the cheapest quality, I'm talking Chinese stuff that you can't even buy in stores its so cheap.
I can't speak for the other courses, but the Locksmith course through ICS Canada is definitely not worth it.
Canceling is a whole story within itself. It took me 2 months to cancel and 3 frustrated calls to find out I needed to write them a personalized hand written... (read more)

I did my full program in 3 months and I read alllll of the crappy stuff they send me. I already have many diplomas in various field and was just curious about their various program so I paid it all one shot, not asking for any money back because to be honest I don't need it. My pears in management told me never to put ICS on your resume because it's an automatic refusal, they won't even consider you for the position. Do not waste your money, go to an actual school or recognized online... (read more)

I am currently taking Administrative Assistant course in Canada (half is done). I have been working as an Administrative Assistant for 10 years but not in Canada. However, I have decided to take the course by two reasons: 1) get a recognized certificate I can mention in my Resume and back up my non-canadian diplomas and experience 2)refresh knowledge and make it systematic. So far, the course is satisfying my needs. Study materials are (books) of good quality and delivered in a timely... (read more)

Im actually shocked at the low review rate... I recently started a course with ICS, and find it WONDERFUL. Im a stay at home mom of 2 busy boys, I read my books when its convenient for me, no pressure for assignments or exam deadlines... Being able to start a potential career, and at my own pace is a great combo. Im very happy I found ICS and think it deserves a better review. As well... I have never had a problem with the student services, always kind and helpful. (read more)

I've had quite enough of people bashing ICS. Maybe the fact that I'm in Canada and have different tutors....maybe that's why I've had a completely different experience. My tutor always gets back to me within 48 hours, usually within 24. He is always, unfailingly helpful. Their grades are fair. I'm done, I'm just waiting for my last project to be marked, and then I will get my diploma in Paralegal studies. I love the fact that you can work the schedule around your life....if I want to go away... (read more)

Alright. I'm going to be a bit vulgar here. My name is Daryn Flannery, from Ontario, I'm 28 years old, I've graduated a Diploma in Accounting and Business Management. I continue to take ICS academics.
I've been reading many other reviews here and I've noticed most of the bad reviews consist of students or their mothers (coughs), complaining that teachers are not tutoring efficient enough. Morons! That is what you signed up for! There is a reason why this is called "online studies",... (read more)

Took the ICS Retail Pharmacy course - passed. And the course is NOT reconized by the OCP (Ontario College of Pharmacists)
What a complete waste of time and money!!!!
If they are a Canadian company, why would they not be aware of such things?
I'm in the process of contacting them for a full refund and have contacted my lawyer. (read more)
