CAIB 1 Immersion (e-Delivery via Zoom)
April 23 - 29, 2022
When it comes to CAIB Immersion, IBAS and West Coast Training had to quickly come up with a new ‘normal’ for the delivery of the popular learning option. IBAS is happy to announce that the e-delivery Immersion course will continue until it is safe for us to meet in person once again.
Through our partnership with West Coast Training's Todd Hochban, we are able to replicate the same quality of learning and student experience that you would ordinarily receive in the classroom, but using the Zoom videoconferencing platform. Todd will mix his trademark instruction style with breakout assignments and other activities to ensure students are fully prepared to write the CAIB 1 exam.
Registration deadline is 2 p.m. April 18th, 2022!
When will this take place?
This virtual intake will run April 23 – 29, 2022. There will be a short orientation at 6:30 p.m. April 23, followed by classes running Sunday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The only difference from our regular in person Immersion is there will not be a dedicated exam day on April 30. The exam will need to be administered by a qualified proctor at a date that is convenient for you, or through IBAS at a later time. Please note that exams MUST be completed before June 30, 2022. Any exam not completed within that time span will not be eligible for a refund.
What equipment will I need?
Other than the CAIB 1 textbook, which must be purchased separately, all you need to take advantage of this option is a computer with reliable internet access. For individuals who may have slower connection speeds, you may choose to mute your computer speakers and microphone, and use telephone-based audio (although you would continue to leverage the visual aspect of the delivery).
A webcam is mandatory to participate in the CAIB Immersion course.
Registered Participant Agreement
By registering for the Online CAIB 1 Immersion Course, you are agreeing to refrain from the following activities:

Government Funding Support
We are very pleased to announce that the Re-Skill Saskatchewan Training Subsidy (RSTS) is now available to employers across Saskatchewan. Through this initiative, many of our members may be able to secure 100 per cent reimbursement of eligible costs for our spring CAIB 4 & 1 Immersion courses.
Even if you are ineligible for the RSTS, however, your brokerage may very well be eligible for reimbursement funding ranging between two-thirds and five-sixths of eligible costs through the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant (CSJG). IBAS staff have deep experience with this program and are available to advise members through the application process. Contact Jordan Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Where do I go with questions?

A special thank you to our CAIB programming sponsor, Saskatchewan Mutual Insurance.
