As of January 01, 2020, all students must study current educational materials from an approved General Level 1 Educator in order to be certified as having met the prerequisites to write the Alberta General Insurance Level 1 Licensing Exam. You can no longer challenge the Alberta General Level 1 Licensing Exam.
This new certification format is known as the Level 1 General Licensing Qualification Program (GLQP).
Why implement the General Licensing Qualification Program?
The intention of candidate certification in order to register and write the licensing exam is to ensure the competency of new entrants into the General Insurance field. Low pass-rates have been an ongoing subject of concern with educators and industry stakeholders. A change in program approach is now being delivered to ensure consistent education delivery and to improve student success rates.
How do I prepare for the Alberta General Insurance Level 1 Licensing Exam and become certified with ILScorp?
The first step to starting your new career as an insurance professional in Alberta is to obtain a CIPR number. What is CIPR? CIPR is short for Canadian Insurance Participant Registry.
Once you register with CIPR online, you’ll receive a unique identifier called your CIPR # which can be used to identify you. ILScorp needs your CIPR number in order to eventually certify you to write the Alberta Licensing Exam.

The program is broken down into 8 Modules.
When you first log in to your e-learning campus you will be presented with the Alberta Level 1 Terms and Conditions. If you agree with the terms and conditions you will then have access to the very first Module of the program, Module 1: Concepts and Characteristics of Insurance.
Each Module is broken into chapters with the end of chapter quizzes. At the end of each Module is a Module final exam.
Once you successfully complete all review quizzes and pass the final Module Exam you will get access to Module Two. This pattern continues for each Module and once all 8 Modules are successfully completed you will have access to the online certification exam. Once you pass your certification exam, ILScorp will receive a notification that you have completed all course material and qualify to become certified.
ILScorp will then mark you as certified in the CIPR system. This is why you need a CIPR number, without it we cannot mark you as certified. As soon as ILScorp marks you as certified, you can immediately register for the licensing examination with the Alberta Insurance Council.
You will then be certified for 1 full year. If you do not write the Alberta Licensing Exam within the year, you will be required to purchase course material again and go through the certification process again.
If you do not complete all ILScorp course material and pass the ILScorp certification exam you will not be marked as certified and will not qualify to register for the Alberta Licensing Exam.
What if I do not have Certified status and I try to register for the Licensing Exam?
Students will not be able to register for a General Licensing Level 1 examination if they have not been certified by an approved educator.
