The new structure of the 2016 Harmonized LLQP will require candidates to successfully complete open-book modular licensing exams.
Why have a modular examination?
- The examination modules are: Life Insurance; Accident and Sickness Insurance; Segregated Funds and Annuities; and Ethics and Professional Practice;
- Requiring candidates to pass the four modules will help ensure new agents have the entry level proficiency needed for basic financial literacy in life insurance products.
- The current examination cannot meet this objective asa candidate’s strengths in one or more areas of the examination may compensate for significant weaknesses in others.
Why have an open-book examination?
- By mirroring the realities of professional practice, an open-book examination will help ensure candidates focus on their understanding of the course material rather than relying on rote knowledge to answer examination questions.
