The Basic Broker Preparation Course satisfies the Basic Broker Skill Requirements as established by the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO).
It is a lengthy and fast-moving course that requires attendance at all lectures. It is recommended that a student spends a minimum of 3-4 hours in a private study between each lecture.
Emphasis is placed on Insurance Principles and personal automobile and property coverages. Frequent Term Quizzes given throughout the course allow the student a measure of his/her accomplishments to date.
A review exam will be supplied covering all course subject matter in preparation for the RIBO exam. These quizzes and review exams do not contribute to the RIBO exam or marks.
