The Canadian Professional Insurance Broker (CPIB) is the senior designation program developed by IBAC and its provincial/regional member associations. It is specifically designed for P&C insurance brokers. CPIB courses are open to any student; however, admission requirements apply to those who are interested in earning a CPIB designation.

Flexible and specialized, the CPIB program has three distinct streams of study - Personal Lines, Commercial Lines and Broker Management. Within each stream, three mandatory courses and three elective courses must be completed. The program's courses may also be taken individually for general interest or Continuing Education Credits. Graduates' use of the CPIB designation is restricted to members or associate members of IBAM or one of the other provincial associations. Non-members are welcome to take the CPIB program and, upon graduation, will receive a Certificate of Completion.
