Humber’s Insurance Management – Property and Casualty program prepares students for success in the workplace. But don't take our word for it, see what some of our alumni have to say about their experience in this program:
"Within a few months of graduating, I have received my Brokers license and received several job offers from top employers. The IMPC program was instrumental in starting my career in the insurance industry."
"The professors shared their experiences and provided us with advice on how to succeed in this industry. Their enthusiasm and passion encouraged me to not only pursue the IMPC certificate but also to take the Chartered Insurance Professional exams. Employers are impressed by the fact that most of Humber students come out with 7 out of 10 CIP exams. In my case, my employer is very happy to support me with the 3 remaining exams, but having the 7 previous CIP exams was a huge asset when they were considering me for the position."
"The IMPC program curriculum focuses on the core principles of insurance, as well as beneficial classes such as accounting, career planning, and computer programming. This program maintains a good mix of everything that will help you be successful in entering the industry."
Career opportunities may be found at many property and casualty (P&C) insurance companies of which many are positioned in the GTA, as well as across Canada. Choose your area of specialization – underwriting, loss adjusting or agency/brokerage – to complete your final three Chartered Insurance Professional courses. Then lean in and go far. P&C insurance is among the largest and most lucrative industries in the country with expanding employment demand due to industry growth and an aging workforce. Jobs here require specialized higher education levels and often pay above average.
Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP)
This program is recognized by The Insurance Institute of Canada (IIC) as providing seven of the ten required courses toward the Chartered Insurance Professional designation (CIP).
Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO)
