The course provides advice for landlords both to avoid renting to questionable individuals, as well as to monitor their property for any signs of such activity that might come to light. A comprehensive assessment of the student’s grasp of the information is also provided.

Also known as GLQP, the project is intended to assist educators in tailoring course material/delivery to prospective general insurance level 1 examination registrants through providing success rates specific to each provider and course delivery method. The project aims to ensure consistent education delivery and to improve student success rates.
s of January 01 2020, all students must study current educational materials from an approved General Level 1 Educator in order to be certified as having met the prerequisites to write the Alberta General Insurance Level 1 Licensing Exam. You can no longer challenge the Alberta General Level 1 Licensing Exam. This new certification format is known as the Level 1 General Licensing Qualification Program (GLQP). Why implement the General Licensing Qualification Program? The intention of candidate certification in order to register and write the licensing exam, is to ensure competency of new entrants into the General Insurance field. Low pass-rates have been an ongoing subject of concern with educators and industry stakeholders. A change in program approach is now being delivered to ensure consistent education delivery and to improve student success rates.

LScorp enters the completed courses on the Chambre’s site on the 16th for courses completed from the 1-15th of the month and on the 1st for courses completed on the 16-31 of the previous month. Please allow a few business days for all the courses to be entered.
