Online Insurance Instructor
Ensure Training & Education Ltd.
Calgary, AB

Job Summary

Introduction:

Ensure Training & Education Ltd. provides ONLINE prep courses for students taking their Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker (CAIB) and Fundamental (Level 1) Insurance designation exams.

Our dual-track course is comprised of two parts: First, a weekly virtual classroom where students and facilitators attend a virtual classroom, and second an online student portal filled with study materials, practice quizzes and other learning tools.

We are looking for knowledgeable insurance professionals to teach our online prep courses which run from approximately September-November, and April-June.

Job Description:

The Time Commitment:

  • Virtual Classroom Commitments: Courses are 8-10 weeks in length, running once per week starting at either 5pm PST, or 6pm PST. Classes are 2.5 hours in length with two 10-minute breaks.
  • Outside Class Commitments: Marking of Ensure/s practice midterms and practice finals. Ensure provides page references as marking guides for the facilitators. Answering student emails within 2 business days. Correspondence with Ensure Training administration.
  • Two hours of Ensure Teacher Training.

Location:

  • We provide facilitators with login information to access the programs necessary to run the virtual classroom from their home or office.

Facilitator’s Responsibilities:

  • Facilitators do not have to write their own lesson plans! Ensure Training provides prescribed slides to use for each class for the facilitator to use. Facilitators are encouraged to add their expertise verbally during class by adding examples, answering questions, and facilitating discussion with the class.
  • Facilitators do not have to write their own assessments! Ensure Training has written all quizzes, practice midterms, and practice finals. Facilitators only need to mark the practice midterms and practice finals.
  • During class, the facilitator must assess student understanding by engaging students in questions by requesting verbal or chat-box answers, initiating polls and quizzes using the virtual classroom program, answering questions, and otherwise interacting with students rather than solely lecturing from the slides. Based on the results of the assessments, the facilitator can then review and explain concepts which the students are struggling with.
  • Facilitators are responsible for answering student CAIB course content e-mails to the best of their ability within 2 business days.
  • Facilitators are solely responsible for having, and having access to:
  • A computer or a laptop that will run the GoToTraining program and a good internet connection.

Nature of the relationship

  • The facilitator is hired as an independent contractor.
  • The facilitator must understand and accept that every class they teach will be recorded and displayed on the student portal during the length of the course and may be used for marketing or future Ensure products.
  • Ensure Training offers facilitators a starting wage of $1,050 per course. However, the wage also depends on the facilitator’s education and work experience, as well as the number of students in the class.

Class Cancellation

  • Courses will only run if the minimum number of students in a course are met.
  • Facilitators will be advised of course cancellation 7 days before the course start date.
  • In the event of a course cancellation Ensure Training and the facilitator need to re-assess if the facilitator can teach at a later date or teach one of the other CAIB courses.
