February 1 - 7:
Question #1:
  What are the two "New" Learning Options for the CIP program introduced by the Insurance Institute of Nova Scotia in 2017?

Answer: (found here)

1. Rewrite Support:  Are you registered for a rewrite and looking for extra help? Rewrite Support is for you. For $250 + HST you have full access to either Virtual or Weekend Warrior classes and instructors, including recorded sessions, but you're not required to attend classes, complete assignments, or write the midterm. Your grade is based solely upon the final exam.
2. Auditing a Course: Do you already have your CIP or FCIP? If one of our courses would be helpful in your current position, Auditing may be the answer for you. You don't write the final examination or receive a CIP credit, but you do benefit from quality instruction. You pay $250 + HST plus the cost of books, if required, but no examination fee.

Winner:  Darryl Wilson, FCIP - Arthur J. Gallagher, New Glasgow
