Hi Folks,

Just a quick update on the Alberta insurance exams administered by the Alberta Insurance Council (AIC).

Effective August 1st, 2022, the AIC will only be offering online exams to those that reside outside of the areas where in person exam centers are located.

If you are in these cities, you will need to write the Alberta insurance exam in person:

  • Calgary
  • Edmonton
  • Fort McMurray
  • Grande Prairie
  • Lethbridge
  • Medicine Hat
  • Red Deer

Unfortunately, it appears that this change has been due to folks taking advantage of the online exam to cheat and compromise the security and integrity of the exam process. Once these issues have been resolved, the AIC may consider reopening online exams for all.

Being a digital-first company, our stance is in favor of more online exams but only in situations where integrity is not compromised. Therefore, we support the AIC’s decision to temporarily restrict eligibility for the online Alberta insurance exam until the problems can be addressed.

We hope this happens soon!
