Insurance Licensing Program
Insurance Licensing ProgramThis course introduces the student to the requirements for licensing a candidate for Life Insurance and Accident and Sickness (A&S). Today's licensing requirements mandate certification through a regulator approved Provider and approved training program. Seneca has achieved both of these distinctions. This course will introduce the student to a basic history of the Life Insurance Industry, products common to all companies and also the three financial models of today's product providers (Stock, Mutual and Fraternal). Not only will the student become familiar with products such as Life Insurance but also Insurance financial investments instruments and a broad array of living benefits plans, such as medical, both group and personal, critical illness and long term care. The course concludes with a basic grounding in Insurance Law, Contract Law, Regulation and Professional Standards for Agents. Students will be prepared to write the LLQP course providers exam on completion of the course. A certificate will then be issued that will entitle them to write the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) LLQP licensing exam.
