Part-Time: Coming again in 2023
The LLQP is a recognized certification program that will qualify candidates to write the provincial insurance regulator's licensing exam. The objective is to provide a solid learning foundation for insurance professionals entering the field. The program is organized in the following modules: Life Insurance, Accident and Sickness Insurance, Segregated Funds and Annuities, and Ethics and Professional Practice, Common Law.
Candidates will have four attempts after passing the course provider's certification exams to successfully pass all the required provincial exams. The duration of each exam is 75 minutes with 30 questions for each module, except for Ethics and Professional Practice which has 20 questions. No physical notice of completions or certificates will be issued. When students complete their certification exams, the course provider will upload this information to their profile and then they will be eligible to write the Provincial LLQP Licensing exams. Once certified, the candidate will then have one year to write and pass the four course module exams with their province. The candidate must obtain a minimum of 60% on each exam. Once they complete their exams, they can start the licensing process with the corresponding Insurance Council.
All certification exams will be proctored online to promote compliance and exam integrity. Advocis has partnered with Canadian-based Integrity Advocate to provide secure online exams. The online proctoring service starts after registration but before content access is made available a candidate attestation and identity validation process must be completed to provide access to the course materials. As the candidate prepares for the online proctored certification exam, the candidate must complete a second identification validation process before the exam is made available. Instructions, resources, exam preparation and exam rules are located within the Advocis Learning Environment, accessible to registered students.

Effective January 1, 2022, candidates are allowed up to a maximum of four attempts to pass a certification module exam with a minimum grade of 60%. Failure to achieve the minimum grade on a module exam by the fourth attempt will result in a mandatory retaking of the course. The first exam attempt is complimentary, and online proctored certification exam attempts are available 24/7 with no need to book an appointment. If required, it is strongly recommended that candidates take at least 24 hours between exam attempts to revisit resources and to strengthen their weak areas with chapter quizzes, videos and other tools that are available to them.
