It helps in many ways depending on what you choose to take up.
I have now taken up four cources, and i dont regret doining that atall.
All the cources i have taken have helped my undertsand my aim and goal in life and have helped me achive the right route towards my goal.
Me being an ICS student am proud to be a part of the ICS name.
They are the best in supporting a new student, aswell as building confidence in one.
I came back to study after 2 years due to medical grounds, i was scared about… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2011

I studied with ICS a Personal Assistant Diploma and ECDL 2007 which was included in my course. It was a good course which covers Business Administration aswell, as I studied self study my materials arrived in time to complete my studying also had fun doing it on my own and If I need help the tutor was always on call.

The only think that I did like was when the send my materials for the PA course and ECDL my ECDL was out of date and I had only relasied from when I called to register for exams… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2011

I successfully completed the basic Counselling Skills course, I would definitely recommend this to someone as a 'taster course' if they have an interest in counselling. i completed 6 assessments (multiple choice) but would have liked some short answer questions, to put what I learned into my own words. I am now in the process of applying to university to study this subject at a higher level… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2011 by engineer34 (1 review written)

I have recently completed the C&G in Basic Mechanical Engineering and found the course very good. Some of the course material was not good, as some of the answers on the review assesments were wrong!

I passed this course in November 2010 and have recently started a BTEC Level 3 in Electronic Engineering and i am finding this course much better for material content.

All in this seems to be a good way of advancing your own knowledge and education within your own time showing employers… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2011

I recently completed a Management course with ICS and I have to say that I really got a lot from it. You have to really apply yourself as you are pretty much on your own, but I guess that would be the case anywhere. I always found them friendly and happy to help if I asked for assistance.

Overall I enjoyed the course and would certainly think about using ICS again in the future… Read Full Review

“If I could give a lesser rating than 1 start, I would! ”

Written on: 25/04/2011

If I could give a lesser rating than 1 start, I would!

I signed up to a course and paid for it in full (instead of monthly installments). Once they received my payment, they were incredibly hard to contact or reach anybody for some decent advise.
Shortly after signing up, I gave birth to a special needs baby who needed 100% attention. I was unable to cancel the course and enventually I had passed the 12 month support period allowance given with the course, so I was told that I could not gain… Read Full Review

Course: BTEC Advanced Diploma Ellectrical Installation Level 3.

I've recently completed this course, and have to say I've learnt alot. Intially ICS will help you enrolling (getting the money) then it's up to you. I put 100% in and passed with good grades, but my aim was to learn and I have. One on-line tutor was poor, one was excellent!

I guess some will like it and others want… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2011

Having submitted my FIRST work I waited to be allocated a tutor. Instead I was congratulated on graduating have never been given a tutor. There followed an unacceptable series of letters in which I was accused of not paying for the course and despite explaining that I had cancelled I was referred to debt collection agency. Despite telling this agency what had happened I was referred to them a SECOND TIME. This was totally unacceptable but took months to sort out. In particular I got letters… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2011

I had a truly awful experience with ICS!! After studying my choice of course for nearly a year and three quarters of the way through it, I received a phone call telling me that the master copy of the course had been lost and the work I had already completed was worthless and to choose another course. I was sold another course as nearly the same as the one I had been studying, it was far from it! The tutors comments on the 1st course were nothing short of illegible, the responce time to queries… Read Full Review

I found my course very educational and it really helped me build up on my existing knowledge of the subject. Lovely course material, easy to understand, great support from the staff...on the whole a great experience.
Only negative will be the certificate issued at the end of the course.

Written on: 19/04/2011

I took an ICS diploma in personnel management i found the course very educational. The course work was up to date i did check this with the CIPD. The tutor answered my question as quickly as i would have expected when i finished the course the tutor gave me some good advice. And i received marks of B-C-B-A and some interesting comments the diploma doesn't look much and is not accredited by anyone other than ICS that was a bit disappointing. But under the circumstances it was never my intention… Read Full Review
