OISC resources

Live online OISC Level 1 and 2 training courses now available

We now offer four-week guided-learning online OISC Level 1 and 2 training courses. With two live seminars per week on Mondays and Thursdays between 4pm and 5.30pm over four weeks, a dedicated tutor and group sizes capped at ten trainees, the courses are the best way to prepare for the OISC exams. Trainees study our best-in-class online materials in their own time then come together to revise key learning points and go through additional exercises with the tutor.

We offer a complete online OISC Level 1 training course for Free Movement members. We use simple, plain English, diagrams, infographics and worked examples throughout the course as well as auto-marking “test yourself” questions at the end of every course unit.
