In 2014, the Institute's education committee made a decision to
hold its examinations twice a year instead of only once and the
first November exams offered by Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers
have successfully come to an end.
In previous years, exams were held in April. In recent times,
they have attracted more than 2,000 students who sat some 6,000
exam papers over a period of two weeks.
Examination details have now been confirmed following the
November launch. There were 33 exam centres around the world. Most
countries involved had just a single centre. But India had two,
South Africa had three and the United Kingdom had eight.
A very encouraging 909 students were due to sit 1,526 papers
around the world. Exams in eight subjects were held over four days
from 24th to 27th of November. On the Monday,
there was Introduction to Shipping and Shipping Business. Tuesday
saw Economics of Sea Transportation and International Trade and
Legal Principles in Shipping Business. Wednesday attracted
candidates for Dry Cargo Chartering and Port Agency. On the final
day came Liner Trades and Ship Operations and Management.
A breakdown of the Institute demographics by geographical area
is as follows:
The thirst for both knowledge and qualification by Greece is
especially to be welcomed.
