Study Options

The ICB itself does not offer any courses. They’re not training providers, they only prepare your assessments and exams. So if you want to study ICB courses, you need to register with accredited training providers. Luckily, we are one of the most affordable institutions to study ICB courses with. Furthermore, we have benefits  such as:

  1. 30-day money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with your choice of study. 
  2. Online student support and world-class tutors.
  3.  Skills focused training preparing you for the workforce.

Accredited Training Providers 

The ICB accredited a number of colleges across the continent to offer their courses. It is up to you to decide where to apply. This may depend on your location or the form of learning you want. For example, are you looking to study on campus, via distance learning or online? Whatever the answer may be, the decision lies with you. 

Distance Learning 

This is the cheapest and most convenient form of getting an education in ICB. If you’re a working person or would like to create your own study schedule, this is perfect for you. You’ll study in the comfort of your own home. It’s like getting an education without leaving your couch! After registering with your college of choice, you must to register with the ICB to get your Portfolio of Evidence (PoE)

Full Time Studies

 If you have no other commitments, you can study full time. This option is most popular amongst school leavers.They’re still young, have no other obligations and have graduated matric. More often than not, this form of learning requires the student to be on campus.

Part Time Studies 

This is perfect for those who have other commitments but have a bit of time to spare to attend classes. Say you have a family to take care of full time or are working, this is perfect for you. This could either be in a class on campus or via distance learning.

How ICB Programmes Work 

The ICB programmes work like every other qualification. The only difference with ICB is that you have to register with a training provider first. Once you have registered, you then register with the ICB for your PoE. Depending on what course you’re doing, you may need to choose your examination dates as well. We’ve broken down what makes up these courses below.

Portfolio of Evidence (PoE) 

You’re probably wondering what is this PoE we have been going on about. A PoE is a showcase of your skills, what you have learned and what you can do.  Your PoE will consist of your assignments, tests, and needs to be submitted with your final exam. 

Assessments/Exams

If you do your ICB courses via distance learning, you will have exams 4 times a year. For students who are attending classes, you write an exam each month. Depending on the programmes you chose, you can expect to write up to three assignments and two tests. All the programmes have about 12 subjects in total.

Exam Fees

How you pay your fees depends on what method of learning you chose. 

  • Classroom based students – all the fees are payable via their colleges.
  • Distance learning you have to pay your fees directly to the ICB.

     

  • For all programmes the annual registration fee is R360.00
