YES, We are committed to keep our courses up to date with the licensing exam requirements
After a review of the exam material changes of January 2016, some of the extra commercial insurance based lessons were removed to better fit the content of the exam. If required, a separate Commercial Insurance Course is available on this site. This Commercial Insurance Course content is also part of the Level II course material.
Latest Statistics from the AIC
The overall pass rate for the GL1 from all course providers is 37.95%. The pass rate for students that identified netLEARNnow as their providers is 80% for the month of January 2016. This is a direct quote from the last monthly stat results email we recieved from the Alberta Insurance Council.
We are currently rewriting all of the course content. Some of our Level I lessons were recorded in 2010, so it is time to update the video lessons. However, as mentioned earlier, the current technical content presented in our material is still appropriate to prepare for the Level I exam. We just want to modernize our video lessons to make it more interesting to watch for our students. Expect new video lessons to be published by the end of January. Anyone, still within their original subscription period will receive free upgrade to the new course.
YES! As you may know the Alberta Insurance Council introduced major changes to the licencing exams for January 2016. After a difficult sencond-half of 2014 and 2015, where over 50% of Level I exam writers failed the Level I examination, and after consultation with Training Providers in Alberta, the AIC has made significant changes to the Licensing Exams for 2016. The technical content has NOT changed, but they have "updated" the soft skills questions. As one of the approved course delivery for the AIC, we have been promised that the new exam is more reasonalble and that many of the "non-sense" questions have been removed or edited.
No changes were required for the technical content of the course, and our Practice Quizzes have been updated to include new "essential" & broker skills questions to match the exam curriculum requirements.
Final updates were made to Module 2 (Auto Insurance) and Module 8 (Essential Skills). Out Study Guides and various handouts now total more than 1,000 pages.
More updates and lessons were added to the course on the last few days of June and the beginning of July.
We were made aware that the Alberta Insurance Council added a lot more commercial insurance questions to the licensing exams. During the following week, we developed, produced and published 7 new video lessons and a dozen of new PDFs to address the changes. This shows how committed we are to stay current.
November 2012 -- Spring of 2013
The Alberta Insurance Council has made some significant changes to the licensing exams.
The main change in 2013 was a removal of a Level II Commercial License and the addition of Commercial Insurance questions into the exams for both Levels I & II. To match this chane, we have added the required lessons in our exam preparation courses. Another change made was that the exam is now a 2 hour long, 100 questions exam. Same number of questions but additional time to complete it.
