Textbooks, Online Tutorials, and Addenda

All CIP courses include a comprehensive textbook developed by the Insurance Institute. The Textbook Editions will show you the most current edition of the CIP learning material available.

Note about Student Resource Guides (SRGs): All new textbook editions published after 2016 include an enhanced online tutorial. The online tutorial replaces the SRG from previous mandatory and applied courses.


Online Tutorials

Online tutorials are available in e-Learning for most courses. They include the following:

  • Practice questions (multiple-choice, narrative, and application questions)
  • Interactive learning activities such as flashcards, quizzes, and trivia games
  • Discussion board with a tutor available to answer course related questions

Online tutorials are included with the purchase of a textbook from the Insurance Institute and are not sold separately. Access to the online tutorial is provided immediately on purchase and expires 365 days from the date of purchase.

How to access online tutorials

  • Go to elearning.insuranceinstitute.ca
  • Log in using your IIC member ID and IIC web password
  • If you have not created an online member account, create your account here and select "I have a User/Member ID."

Note: If you are a new e-Learning user, you will be prompted to enter an email address in your e-Learning profile and verify the email address the first time you log in. That email address will be used for e-Learning class correspondence only. The email address recorded in your IIC Member Profile will continue to be used for all IIC mailings, including password-reset emails.

If you purchased your books from a College bookstore, proof of purchase should be provided to elearning@insuranceinstitute.ca. Access will then be provided within two business days. 

It is recommended that students use the textbook and online tutorial/student resource guide, if available, to prepare for their examination.

CIP Course Textbook Addenda

For select courses, an addendum is published that contains changes to the existing publication which should be used in addition to the original version of the textbook.
