ICM continues to conduct limited-seating exam writing and are writing on-site exams multiple days per week in Winnipeg. In-person examinations are also available in Brandon for residents of Westman as outlined in the ICM notice here. Exam registrations can be made through ICM’s online exam registration system, including new exam registrations.
ERRORS AND OMISSIONS INSURANCE:
Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance for licence holders is a critical component to public protection. It is essential that agents and agencies continue to ensure that their E&O insurance is current and provides appropriate levels of coverage. Licensees should plan for timely completion of E&O renewals to ensure there are no gaps in coverage. Due to the changing nature of the business environment, it is strongly recommended that licensees review with their E&O provider any conditions or changes that would affect their current coverages.
