Broker School
2-Week Training Session

We are currently accepting applications for Broker School in 2020.

ITAC Inc. is working on the next Broker School to allow candidates to complete the program online (there may be a day of live consult or via online webinar for people outside the Halifax Regional Municipality).

This is an 8-day* program in which accepted applicants will be trained on the Fundamentals of Insurance, in preparation for the General Insurance Licensing Examination to be written within the first week of training.
Training is focused on entry-level insurance broker skills, preparing individuals for the challenges of the required Fundamentals Insurance Exam. In addition to providing knowledge of Broker Management Systems (BMS) basics (e.g. PowerBroker and Applied Epic / TAM), portal basics, customer service skills, and professionalism training (for more information see the itinerary below). Upon completion of the training program, ITAC Inc. instructors will assist successful candidates in obtaining interview opportunities for full time employment with local brokerages (locations available across NS, NB, PEI, & NFLD).

Insurance Brokerages across the Atlantic provinces are seeking professionally trained and competent brokers to work for their businesses – ITAC Inc. is training and finding these highly demanded workers while simultaneously providing exciting job opportunities for individuals in the community.
