student groups onlineLive Online Classes

Great for those who want to be webbed in, want to meet with a facilitator and brokers from around the province, and want structured learning.

Get the best of both worlds: a live classroom online and a student portal with online study tools through our partner Ensure Training:

  • Weekly online classes where you can listen and engage with your facilitator in real time
  • Recorded videos in case you miss a class or want to review
  • A practice midterm, a practice final exam, chapter study aids (flashcards, PowerPoint slides, quizzes, and a bit of short-answer homework), and email prompts to keep you on task.

A minimum of 75% class attendance or 50% exam grade fulfills the CE requirement. For attendance, IBAA monitors online time. Minimum attendance for a CE certificate means attending 75% of the classes—with an 80% or higher attention rate during each class (for example, no pop-up windows for email or minimized screens).
