Commercial Insurance

For Canadian Agents and Brokers

Who needs this?

If you are an insurance agent or broker interested in expanding your current insurance portfolio to include Commercial Insurance, this is a great course for you.

How does it work?

To build this course, I took the material I used to teach in a 2 days Commercial Insurance classroom course and created a series of condensed video lessons covering all the material you need to learn about the Fundamentals of Commercial Insurance in Canada. I added worksheets, mind maps and other relevant documents to support the video lessons in the course. All of the documents are PDFs that you can download to print and keep as a reference, or you can view them on the screen to save on printing. The choice is yours and the documents will be there for you for as long as you need them.

How long does it take?

All the material is available to you within minutes of enrolling. The video lessons are available 24/7 and you can watch them from anywhere you have Internet access. If you are new to general insurance, I recommend you plan to study this material over a few weeks. That being said, you could go through all the material in a weekend if you wanted to.

Is this material current?

YES! This course is always up-to-date with the current information and Forms from the Insurance Bureau of Canada. You will find the video lessons you need to prepare you for a career in Commercial Insurance in Canada. The course is updated as new information or requirements come up. We are also open to suggestions from you about content that might be relevant for this course, or any other courses we offer.
