Foundation Diploma

Your Pathway to Maritime Industry Knowledge (3).png

The Foundation Diploma is ideal for people with little industry experience but who would like to gain practical knowledge and a sound qualification. It involves taking the Introduction to Shipping paper plus one other subject from Group 1 (except Shipping Business) or from the Group 2 list of optional papers from the Institute's syllabus.

The Foundation Diploma is a stand-alone qualification in its own right, but because it can count towards your membership examinations it is also a great way to ease into study and gives you an overall view of the business.

A Foundation Diploma is awarded if both subjects are passed in the same exam sitting.
