2023 | RIBO Level 1 Weekend Refresher Course | June 16, 17, & 18 & October 13, 14, & 15

Posted Feb 7th, 2023 in Educational Seminars, IBAH News

If you have taken the Level 1 RIBO Basic Brokers Preparation Course, but would like to do a three-day weekend refresher course, to further prepare, you’re in luck, we’re offering two weekend options in June and October, 2023.

Course Details

This refresher course will review the entire IBAO ‘Becoming an Insurance Broker’ Manual with a heavy focus on the basics of property and auto insurance as this is where most students struggle with securing exam marks.  This course is designed for anyone who may have taken a course previously, was unsuccessful in passing the exam or does not wish to do 100% self study.    

Within the online portal, you will find pre-recorded videos of each chapter, so it is highly recommended that you sign up 2-3 months ahead of time so you can listen to the course material. 

We recommend you review the course material by going over all the self-examination questions at the end of each chapter, and the online quizzes contained in the portal which you will have access to once you register.

IMPORTANT – If you do not give yourself sufficient time to listen to the recordings, read the book and complete quizzes at the back of the chapter then you will not maximize the benefits of this Weekend Refresher course.  The purpose of the course is to act as a review for testing purposes and exam preparation and to provide a touch point for Q&A. 


The Weekend refresher is completed via zoom.


Friday: Chapters 1-6 review – 6 pm thru to 9 pm

Saturday: Chapters 7, 8 & 10 - 10 am thru to 4 pm

Sunday: Chapters 9 & 11 - 10 am thru to 4 pm
