MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 23, 2017 /CNW/ - Starting in the spring of 2017, triOS College Business Technology Healthcare will be introducing a new Insurance diploma program and an Insurance Specialist diploma program.
This program is designed to address the huge need for individuals to replace a retiring workforce in the insurance industry, with a sole focus on property and casualty insurance. Graduates of this program will be able to pursue positions at insurance brokers, who play a key role in the communication between the carriers that provide insurance and the public who require it.
"Companies need people who have the specific skills that belong to their industry," says Frank Gerencser, CEO of triOS Corporation. "The goal of this program is to give students all the insurance specific skills that they need, as well as the workplace expertise that will help them succeed."
To create this program, triOS looked to industry leaders ILScorp, the largest online insurance training provider for the P&C industry in Canada. Under Ken MacRae, President and CEO of ILScorp, triOS Corporation has licensed their curriculum to embed it within their programs, ensuring that students obtain the highest standard training possible.
"There is a growing need in the insurance brokerage industry for new talent" says Ken MacRae, President and CEO of ILS Learning Corporation. "We are excited to partner with triOS to provide the training necessary for individuals to meet their provincial licensing requirements which enables them to access these exciting insurance career opportunities."
This program includes a 2-month internship and preparation for the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO) examination that will prepare graduates with the real-world experience they need for a career in the insurance industry.
Students interested in the new program are encouraged to contact triOS to schedule a free career training counselling session. International students who have previous education in insurance, and are looking to gain accreditation in Canada, are urged to contact the triOS Admissions Support Centre – International Department for more information on how to apply.
ILScorp began in 1991 as a professional education company focused on licensing and continuing education services for the Property and Casualty Insurance industry in Canada. This was a natural niche for ILScorp, as our founder and former President Steve Hawrishok authored The Fundamentals of Insurance course for Canada which issued as a Level 1 licensing course in most provinces in Canada.
Putting together the need for licensing and continuing education courses for insurance professionals, with the tremendous cost savings accrued by delivering those courses over the internet, led to the birth of ILScorp.com.
Today ILScorp is the largest online insurance training provider for the P&C industry in Canada offering accredited (through Insurance Councils in each Province) online licensing as well as continuing education courses in all provinces of Canada. ILScorp works with many of the largest insurance companies and brokerages in Canada customizing insurance education programs and is recognized for the quality of its education offerings.
