ABOUT THE RIBO LEVEL 1 COURSE

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.

The RIBO exam will be written in class on the last day of the course.

REGULATIONS

Upon completion of this course, the student will be qualified to be an “other than life” Insurance Broker as defined in the Registered Insurance Brokers Act, RSO1990 and its regulations. In order for a student to obtain a RIBO registration, it is necessary that employment is obtained with an unrestricted broker within 12 months of the date of passing the exam.

The student will receive a Level 1 “restricted registration.” A restricted registration will not permit the student to establish his/her own brokerage. After 2 years working as a restricted broker & successful completion of the Advanced Broker respective exams, this restriction can be removed.

A restricted registration permits a broker to effect any type of Property & Casualty coverages but the broker is required to have sufficient knowledge of the coverages in order to handle the client’s needs in a professional & competent manner.

Successful candidates may gain employment through any Registered Brokerage in the Province of Ontario. If a candidate does not become employed & registered within 12 months, the student will be required to re-write a RIBO exam.

The Insurance Brokers Association of Hamilton, Insurance Institute, and the Instructors are not responsible for obtaining such employment or recommending employment opportunities.
