Competency Profile Survey

As Canadian Insurance Services Regulatory Organizations announced in July 2012, the Life License Qualification Program (LLQP) is presently undergoing an in-depth review in order to maintain its relevance and set truly national standards.

The first step in this review was to collect information regarding professional practice through occupational analysis workshops held throughout the country in the course of 2012. The result of these consultations is a competency profile that presents all tasks and operations that a new life insurance agent may accomplish in the first years of professional practice.

Because we would like to make this tool as representative of the realities of professional practice as possible, we invite you to provide comments regarding the competency profile by following the link below. The profile itself can be found on the Publications page of this website (www.cisro-ocra.com/publications.html). Your feedback is important to us and will allow us to develop valid preparation and evaluation tools based on a relevant and coherent competency profile.

LLQP Curriculum Survey

Following the publication of the revised Competency Profile for the Life License Qualification Program (LLQP), committees of subject matter experts were formed in order to derive from it an evaluation program. The function of the Curriculum thus drafted is to put forth the competencies that the Canadian Insurance Services Regulatory Organizations (CISRO) will evaluate in their licensing exams. Only those competencies that relate to CISRO’s mandate have been selected. As such, the Curriculum includes every aspect that must be mastered to practice ethically, in accordance with consumer rights. It also takes into consideration the fact that many competencies are perfected over time, with practical experience.

Because the Curriculum constitutes the cornerstone of the LLQP, it is essential for CISRO that it be validated to ensure that it is relevant to career entry and that its scope, structure and terminology are appropriate. We invite you to follow the link below to submit your comments. The survey will be open until November 15, 2013. The Curriculum itself can be found on the Publications page of this website (www.cisro-ocra.com/publications.html). Your feedback is important to us and will allow us to develop valid preparation material and exams based on a Curriculum that is up-to-date and relevant to professional practice.
