The Exam Process

Open Examination Sitting Schedule for in-person examinations

You have the option to write the LLQP exam:

1. In-Person in our Winnipeg location as outlined below.

2. On-Line through our approved external provider, Durham College (please refer to the Durham College website for information on cost which differs from in-person). *NEW as of Nov 4/21*

*Exam Applicants wishing to challenge the General Insurance Examination or Insurance Adjusters Examination are eligible to write in-person only.


Option 1: Examination Locations for In-Person Examinations:

Winnipeg: Examinations are held at the ICM office located at Suite 466 - 167 Lombard Avenue.  

Cancellation Notice for In-Person Exams:

Cancellation of an exam can occur at least one business day prior to the exam. (For example, if your exam is scheduled for Tuesday at 9:00 a.m., you can reschedule before 9:00 a.m. on Monday.) The exam fee is non-refundable. However, if sufficient notice of one business day is provided, the fee can be applied to your next exam booking. An applicant is allowed to cancel and reschedule their first set of examinations one time only within at least one business day prior to the exam.  An applicant is allowed to cancel and reschedule one re-write examination only one time within at least one business day prior to the exam. No further allowances will be made to reschedule an examination. Any further rescheduling will require payment of the examination fee again. (For example, Joe Smith failed his first life insurance exam on Apr 9/20.  He rescheduled it for May 9/20, but decided to cancel this sitting on May 1/20.  He then rescheduled it for May 29/20 at no additional cost.  However, he decided to cancel this sitting as well.  Joe then rescheduled for June 15/20 and had to pay another examination fee for this sitting.)

Important Information Prior to Beginning the on-line exam registration process:

On-line examinations are administered through Durham College, however, the applicant must register through the ICM’s on-line portal first following the instructions noted below. The applicant will not be able to register directly with Durham College without having registered through the ICM office first.

Once the applicant submits the on-line exam registration process, the system will automatically take the applicant back to the “Exam Information” page, however, the applicant will not see any further confirmation on this page until they write their exams with Durham College and their marks are entered by the ICM.

Payment is taken by Durham College directly, and is not remitted to the ICM.

No refunds, cancellations or rescheduling of exams through Durham College are permitted. Refer to the information on the Durham College website available here.

If the LLQP Certificate expires prior to the exam candidate writing their exam(s) with Durham College, the exam candidate could be found ineligible to write and/or receive their licence when applying with the ICM. Durham College advises candidates that it is their responsibility to ensure that the date they select for their exam module falls within their eligibility period and that no refunds are provided for registration made outside of their eligibility period. Note: The eligibility period is outlined within the candidate's CIPR profile.

Once an applicant selects the on-line path, they are not able to register for in-person exams until they complete their on-line exams. If they have a pending on-line exam registration with Durham College, they will only be able to register for the modules listed under “Eligible to Schedule” within their online portal.

A quick overview of the online path is as follows:

- Registration must be completed through the ICM portal.
- Email confirmation is sent by the ICM to the applicant.
- Within 5-business days, the ICM relays the applicant's contact information to Durham College advising them what module(s) the applicant is eligible to write.
- On the 6th business day, it is the responsibility of the applicant to register through the Durham College website for their exam(s).
- The applicant writes their examination(s) on-line.
- Durham College will relay the applicant’s mark(s) to the ICM.
- The ICM will post the mark to the applicant’s ICM portal within 10-business days following their examination write.


Please note that the applicant will not receive email confirmation that the ICM has transferred their information to Durham College, but if they have waited the required 5-business days and are still not able to register with Durham College – following their process as outlined on their website here – the applicant can contact the ICM for assistance at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Examination Results for in-person and/or on-line examinations:

Examination Results are posted in the online portal within 10-business days, and will not be communicated by email or phone. To allow our staff to be as efficient as possible, we ask that you do not contact the ICM office unless your marks have not been posted within 10-business days.
