Life insurance agents in Manitoba licensed by the Insurance Council of Manitoba (ICM) need a certain number of CE credits each licensing period to maintain their certification. Failure to do so can result in penalties such as suspending your certificate and authority to practice and sell life insurance products. To avoid this, make sure you are familiar with Manitoba life insurance CE requirements!
