Your trusted source of insurance education 

Our licensing program provides the education required by the Insurance Council of BC to obtain either a Level 1 Salesperson Licence to sell Autoplan and Homeowner policies or a Level 1 Independent Adjuster Licence to process claims. The course material includes the Insurance Institute’s General Insurance Essentials (GIE) textbooks, but with a single exam for licensing purposes.
