|Hours of Study||60 - 80 hours|
** In order to provide some guidance to course participants as to the length of time it will take to be sufficiently prepared to write the examinations, CSI has prepared this estimate of the number of hours an average participant could possibly expect to spend studying for a course. Please note that these are only recommended hours of study developed based on research and our course content, however, this does not mean that some students with exceptional backgrounds would not take less time than recommended or that students with no background at all in finance would not take longer than the maximum.
Each module is assessed separately and corresponds with the provincial licensing examination requirements.
You need a minimum score of 60% on each module to pass the exam (there are no assignments). If necessary, you have up to three attempts at each module’s exam.
If you plan to sit for a provincial accident and sickness licensing examination you must first complete all of the modules required within this course.
Successful completion of the Accident and Sickness Insurance Course entitles you to write the provincial licensing exam in order to obtain an accident and sickness insurance license.
You have up to one year after successfully completing the CSI exam to sit for the corresponding provincial licensing exam. However, it is recommended that you sit for the corresponding licensing exam soon after successful completion of the course, as your knowledge and understanding of the subject matter will be fresh and current.
