Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers’ wins BIMCO Education & Training Award 2015

FONASBA is delighted to congratulate our colleagues at the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers on winning the Education & Training Award at the 2015 BIMCO Annual Awards Ceremony held in Hamburg on 18th November. Acknowledging the Institute’s achievement, ICS Director Julie Lithgow said “(winning the award) was completely surprising and a bit overwhelming. There are lots of organisations offering maritime training or education, and for BIMCO to notice us, and to specifically acknowledge our commitment to “leave no student behind”, was very special. This can only happen because our members actively support our education programme and by doing so allow our students to have access to our courses and examinations worldwide.
