ILS IGI licensing program now available in Saskatchewan

Sept., 2012 – Canada’s newest and most up-to-date Level 1 licensing program for insurance professionals is now available in Saskatchewan. ILScorp, a long-time provider of insurance and financial services education and training has announced that the ILS Introduction to General Insurance (ILS IGI) program has recently been accredited by the Insurance Councils of Saskatchewan.

The ILS IGI was first launched in British Columbia in January 2012. In May 2012 the program was accredited in Manitoba. Now, entrants to the Saskatchewan general insurance industry can benefit from the same current and comprehensive study program.

“We listened to our students and examined the current learning environment in Canada,” MacRae added. “We found that students had very limited options in obtaining their Level 1 insurance salesperson license. The ILS IGI program gives newcomers to the insurance industry the opportunity to obtain their salesperson’s license from Canada’s leading insurance education and training provider.”

Building on the strong foundation of innovative, Internet-based training ILScorp has honed in its twelve years online, the comprehensive ILS Introduction to General Insurance program is adaptable to all learning types. An easy-to-follow text book, online text or video instruction, study guide, electronic flash cards and practice exams allow students to review program material at their own pace so they are fully confident before writing the ILS IGI final exam.

Todd Hochban, President of West Coast Training Ltd., has been providing insurance licensing training in Saskatchewan for more than 23 years. “Students who have taken the ILS IGI so far have all commented on the broad-based information included,” he said. “It’s a very thorough and effective introduction into the insurance industry.”

“ILS IGI students have repeatedly told me how much they like the options,” Hochban added. “The wealth of online resources available makes the ILS IGI the most user-friendly course in Canada.”

“And the program works,” added MacRae. “In late February 2012, 25 students took part in the first live ILS IGI training seminar in Vancouver. More than 80 percent of the class passed the final exam on the first try – and the vast majority scored 90 percent or better.”
