Become an ICSA registered tuition provider


ICSA Registered Tuition Providers (RTPs) are approved training providers who deliver high quality tuition for ICSA qualifications.

Our Chartered Secretaries Qualifying Scheme (CSQS) and international finance qualifications, provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to work in high-ranking chartered secretary roles or within the international offshore finance industry.

Approved tuition providers are accredited using a comprehensive quality assurance process based on the ICSA key requirements, ensuring that our students receive first class tuition.

There is an initial registration fee of £100 (where we assess and process your application). On approval of your application, there is an annual subscription fee of £300 (pro-rated to the next 1 July.)
