Applicants who do not have the required education for their licence class can request that the Insurance Council consider granting a licence based on alternate education and/or experience. These applications are reviewed on a case by case basis and in accordance with precedents on file. If staff cannot identify a precedent, the application will be presented to Council’s Licensing Committee (Committee). The Committee will be comprised of at least seven members of Council who will either determine whether the Applicant is qualified to hold an insurance licence or make a recommendation to Insurance Council.
Please note, application fees will not be refunded if the application is declined.
Applicants must provide:
Specific details showing how the alternate education provides the same level and depth of knowledge provided by the BC insurance licence application education requirements.
Supporting documentation on successful completion of the alternate education.
Specific details of job duties
Details describing the scope of insurance products or adjusting.
Applicants must submit all detailed equivalency requests with a completed BC insurance licence application, including a criminal record check and applicable fees. See first-time licence applicant or former licensee re-application information.
Applicants can expect an initial response within 10-15 business days of the Insurance Council's receipt of the application. As each request is unique, we are unable to provide an estimated processing time.
