The following list contains the names and links to the websites of each of the LLQP course providers. The courses are provided commercially, and course fees are set by the individual course providers. Courses provided by different course providers are designed to cover the same material and are developed using the same curriculum, but they can take different formats, such as a classroom course, correspondence, or Internet. Agents are encouraged to research the various course options to ensure the course selected is appropriate for their needs.
The following insurance companies are also course providers:
Effective September 1, 2005, a candidate who is not successful after three attempts at a Life Licence Qualification Program (LLQP) examination is not eligible to write the same type of examination for six months after the date of his or her third unsuccessful attempt. Each subsequent attempt at passing the examination requires a further six month waiting period.
To be eligible to attempt the LLQP examination, a candidate must have a valid certificate from an authorized course provider. If the certificate has expired and the candidate hasn’t passed the LLQP examination, he or she is required to obtain another certificate before being permitted to attempt the LLQP examination. Qualified candidates may make three attempts at passing each of the LLQP examinations (life, accident and sickness, life - Transitional Restricted A) without being subject to the six month waiting period.
This policy does not apply to agents holding a Restricted LLQP licence who attempt to complete the Residual B or full LLQP examination. Agents holding a Restricted LLQP licence already have a time limitation to obtain a full LLQP licence so the six month waiting period does not apply. This policy does not apply to candidates who have attempted the LLQP examination in jurisdictions other than Ontario. However, other jurisdictions may have their own policies regarding the rewriting of LLQP examinations.
