Distance Learning

Distance learning is great for the following reasons:

  • Saving money: Contact courses are more expensive than distance learning courses. So by choosing an ICB course, you will be saving money.
  • Working from home: With distance learning, you can work from the comfort of your home since you will not be going into class.
  • Work at your own pace: Distance learning means that you can work at your own pace. As long as your work is done before the deadline, it does not matter when you do it. 
  • Study while you work: Since you are not attending classes, you can work while you study.
