What steps are involved in becoming a personal damage insurance broker
Answer:

To take the AMF’s personal damage insurance exams, you’ll have to study on your own while being paid for 5 weeks. After that, you’ll have to complete a three- or four-week training course on our products and IT systems in Montréal (accommodation is offered for remote offices). Once you have successfully completed your training, you’ll begin a 45-day internship alongside an internship supervisor. Once you’ve completed your internship, you’ll have completed all the requirements to become a personal damage insurance broker at Univesta.

Can anyone become a broker?
Answer:

No, because we are overseen by the AMF. To apply to become a broker, you must:
• Have obtained your high school diploma (DES) or a certificate of equivalency issued by Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration;
• Have three years of full-time work experience (we prefer candidates with client service or sales experience and call-centre experience would be a major asset);
• Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
