PNC Learning is an accredited course provider in many provinces.
When taking the insurance licensing exams for ourselves, we noticed how difficult it was to juggle work and family responsibilities while still trying to study. There was a mountain of material to go through and the cryptic legal-speak was hard to decipher.
To that end, we provide private & group classes and e-Learning courses (including Accredited CE Courses covering the latest changes that affect the insurance industry) designed to be easy to understand and easy to remember. Our programs are designed to get you licensed in weeks but we have had people pass in just 1.
While it still takes some commitment on your part, our guarantee is that we will do everything in our power to make sure you pass your exams.
