Registering as a student is the first step towards gaining ICB qualifications

Before you take ICB assessments you need to become an ICB Registered Student.  You can register online at any time.

Online registration takes just a few minutes. You will need to provide your details and pay the one-off registration fee and the annual Student subscription.  You can find out more about fees here.

As soon as you've completed your online registration you will be an ICB Registered Student and can book your first assessment. We'll write to you by post within one month to confirm your registration and send you your ICB student card.
