Virtual Level 1 Licensing

General Insurance Essentials


We are pleased to offer a live virtual course which meets the educational requirement of the Insurance Council of BC to obtain either a BC Level 1 Salesperson (Broker) or Level 1 Adjusters' Licence.

Our virtual classrooms operate on a web-conferencing platform. In a virtual classroom, the instructor interacts with students using text, presentations, slides, chat, and interactive icons. Virtual Classroom Learning combines the best features of a traditional classroom with the perks of a virtual space. Our virtual licensing courses offer real-time instruction in a virtual classroom and supplemental materials on an e-learning website. You get the convenience of learning from home along with flexibility, interactivity and support. All you need to get started is an internet connection!

Virtual proctoring involves the installation of software on a candidate’s laptop/computer and use of a webcam, among other requirements. The virtual proctor closely monitors candidate activity during the exam.

Online licensing exams are subject to an additional fee, per candidate, per attempt.
