More emphasis has been placed on discussing the ethical decisions that brokers have to make daily in their dealings with other brokerage staff, their clients and the insurance companies they represent. Ethics is all about doing the right thing in a particular situation. As insurance brokers, our clients, insurers and the public would expect us to do nothing less. When you hear the word “ethics” what, if anything, comes to mind? If you said that ethics involves doing the right thing – making the right decision – when in a given situation that offers other possibilities, you are on the right track.
Why do they call it Labor Day? For many, Labour Day signals the end of summer, but Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. Happy Labour Day Canada! ILScorp offices will be closed Monday September 2, 2019 to celebrate Labour Day. Our offices will be open on Tuesday September 3. Hope you had a great summer and enjoy the long weekend! Purchase or renew your CE Course Subscription to complete your mandatory CE requirements online now.

All provincial insurance councils have regulations that require licensees to maintain continuing education records. Random audits can be conducted at anytime and if you do not have the supporting documentation, Council may take disciplinary action, including invalidating your license renewal. With ILScorp online courses, once you successfully complete a course, you can view and print your CE certificates immediately and anytime after! ILScorp keeps your completed course history on file for up to 7 years in case of audit. Here’s how to view and print your CE Certificates.
To continue to provide the highest quality continuing education (CE) for insurance professionals in Alberta, the Alberta Accreditation Committee (AAC) has determined that CE without expiry dates and those accredited for longer than three years, will be phased out and no longer be accredited for CE purposes. This ensures that all CE offered aligns to current market conditions and trends.
What are technical CE credits? If you are a Level 1 or Level 2 licensee, the only qualifying insurance continuing education is technical material directly related to General insurance products, compliance with insurance legislation and licensee requirements such as council Rules, Council’s Code of Conduct, the Insurance Act, and privacy legislation.
