"I took your courses and passed 3 exams in 4 weeks!  I was listening to your lectures repeatedly on mobile and they were so easy to remember. You explain things very well and your notes really distilled all the info in so few pages. Thank you for making my certification process so short and easy." - Rocky G (TSN Insurance) (Courses Taken: Fundamentals, CAIB 2, CAIB 3, & CAIB 4)"Hi Jack, I just got the result: 86%.  Thank you so much Jack!  You helped a lot.  Much appreciated."  - Cathy J. Markham Ontario  (Courses Taken: RIBO 1)
The quality of this learning course is unmatched. This course provides everything you need to pass the RIBO test and more. If it wasn't for this course I would not have got the e-mail today saying I am now a verified RIBO member. Not only is this course very user-friendly and easy to use, my mentor, Jack, answered all my questions I had with almost immediate responses even at ridiculous hours. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to get into the insurance broker industry.  -Aaron L, Ontario (Course Taken: RIBO 1)"The course is set up well and easy to follow and  understand.  And I'm grateful that you're always available for help if needed.    There weren't any surprises, your course covered everything I would have needed to know.  You were such a great help over the course and I have you to thank for passing."   - Derek L  (Course Taken: RIBO 1)
