If you’re looking to become a life insurance agent or a health insurance agent, you need to earn your LLQP license. To do that, you need to pass at least 2 of the 4 LLQP exams.
The 4 LLQP Exams
The Life License Qualification Program (LLQP) is broken up into 4 exams:
- Life Insurance Exam
- Accident & Sickness Insurance Exam (aka. Health Insurance or A&S insurance)
- Segregated Funds & Annuities Exam
- Ethics & Professional Practice Exam (Common Law & Quebec Civil Law)
Each exam is open book, has 50 multiple choice questions and you are given 90 minutes to complete it. Ethics and Professional Practice exam is the exception. It consists of 30 multiple choice questions and you are given 60 minutes to complete.
You have 3 chances to pass each exam so make sure you are using the best resources available to prepare for your exam.
Life Insurance Exams
To become a fully licensed life insurance agent in Canada, you need to pass all 4 LLQP exams.
A fully licensed life agent is able to sell all of the life insurance, health insurance, group benefits, annuities, and segregated funds products here in Canada.
Accident & Sickness Insurance Exams
To become an accident & sickness insurance agent, you need to pass the A&S insurance exam and the Ethics exam.
As an accident & sickness insurance agent, you can sell everything except the life insurance and financial products.
Most people will opt to get the full license while they are already in the mood for studying but if you have a job you need to get licensed for urgently, then just the A&S license will be enough.
