Qualifications and Training Courses for Every Need

Aside from the comprehensive Chartered Secretaries Qualifying Scheme (CSQS), which allows professionals to achieve chartered status and full body membership, ICSA delivers a number of additional qualifications for professionals at different levels.

These include International finance and specialist governance qualifications, as well as a range of professional certificates in areas including Employee Share Plans, Company Secretarial Practice and Share Registration Practice, Company Secretarial Law and Practice (Ireland) and charity management.

Our classroom-based courses are shorter, more focused programmes addressing a number of specific sub-topics in the areas of:

  • Academy
  • Charity
  • Company law and company secretarial practice
  • Directors
  • Essential skills
  • Governance
  • Leadership development
  • NHS

These are complemented by a growing portfolio of online modules that offer governance a more flexible way to develop their skills and continue their professional development.

Finally, we deliver in-house training solutions for organisations needing to train larger numbers of staff on their company premises. These include off-the-shelf courses as well as bespoke programmes designed to meet specific requirements and equip staff with the skills to guarantee the long-term success of their company.
