The Canadian Certified Insurance Broker designation has become a coveted symbol of achievement among independent insurance brokers, recognized by the industry and by the public at large. The CCIB designation is the highest awarded designation by the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC), denoting a professional standard of excellence towards which all insurance brokers may strive. The CCIB sets a standard of quality to merit public recognition throughout Canada, and to ensure that the independent broker will continue to flourish.
The CCIB designation is awarded by IBANS, based upon criteria established by IBAC. There are three examinations: essay style questionnaire, short answer questionnaire, and your choice of an oral or written survey examination. The two written questionnaires are pre-requisite to the oral/written survey examination.
There is no formal course of study because candidates are challenged on their practical knowledge of insurance coverage.
Candidates must have five consecutive years of experience in the insurance industry and must be members in good standing of IBANS.
