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.
If you are considering purchasing a course via one of our Accredited Training Providers (ATPs) they will take care of your ICB registration for you and you do not need to register yourself. More info
If you are registering as an independent student, and not studying with an ATP, 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.

Bookkeeping opened up so many doors for my career."
Roberta Woodcock FICB
I have over 80 clients and 3 staff. Bookkeeping has a reputation for being a grey, solitary occupation - it really isn't! I like to bring some fun and glamour to the job.
