Alberta General Insurance Level 1 Study Guide

To become an insurance broker or adjuster in Alberta, you must first pass the General Insurance Level 1 exam put on by the Alberta Insurance Council.  There are separate exams for brokers and adjusters but this study guide helps prepare you for either one.

The Alberta Level 1 exam tests mostly technical topics so out of the 100 questions on the exam, 60 questions are on Technical Skills & Risk Management, and just 20 questions each for Ethics & Professionalism and Industry Knowledge.

Really appreciate it man!"  - Stephen W, Alberta (Course Taken: Alberta General Level 1)I passed my [Alberta] Level 1 test last week and am super excited about it. I start my new job in the new year.
