triOS College Business Technology Healthcare announced on Monday that it will be introducing a new insurance diploma and insurance specialist diploma program beginning in the spring of 2017.
The program is designed to address the huge need for individuals to replace a retiring workforce in the insurance industry, with a sole focus on property and casualty insurance, triOS College said in a press release. Graduates of the program will be able to pursue positions at brokerages, which play a key role in the communication between the carriers that provide insurance and the public who require it, the release said.
“Companies need people who have the specific skills that belong to their industry,” said Frank Gerencser, CEO of triOS Corporation. “The goal of this program is to give students all the insurance specific skills that they need, as well as the workplace expertise that will help them succeed.”
To create this program, triOS looked to ILScorp, the largest online insurance training provider for the P&C industry in Canada, the college reported. Under Ken MacRae, president and CEO of ILScorp, triOS Corporation has licensed their curriculum to embed it within their programs, ensuring that students obtain the highest standard training possible.
“There is a growing need in the insurance brokerage industry for new talent,” MacRae said. “We are excited to partner with triOS to provide the training necessary for individuals to meet their provincial licensing requirements which enables them to access these exciting insurance career opportunities.”
The program also includes a two-month internship and preparation for the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO) examination that will prepare graduates with the real-world experience they need for a career in the insurance industry.
Students interested in the new program are encouraged to contact triOS to schedule a free career training counselling session. International students who have previous education in insurance, and are looking to gain accreditation in Canada, are urged to contact the triOS Admissions Support Centre – International Department for more information on how to apply.
Canadian-owned and operated, triOS College is a private career college with nine campuses across Ontario. It offers practical, hands-on training in a variety of programs within the business, technology, healthcare, law and supply chain industries.
