Phase 2 – IWS Tutorial

Any brokers who wish to sell Autopac products on behalf of MPI must be qualified to do so by MPI. Before training can be taken on the business rules and policies of the Autopac program, brokers must complete online training of the Insurance Work Station (IWS) by the Friday before phase 3 begins. This training can be done wherever a person has Internet access once their employing / sponsoring brokerage has signed them up for access to the IWS system. This Internet based training can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours depending on the person’s previous knowledge of insurance. Successful completion allows a person to attend the Phase 3 training.

Phase 3 – MPI Training

Through 3 days of classroom instruction, brokers will finalize the training required by MPI to sell the Autopac Products. Students successfully completing and passing the MPI Autopac Exam will now be certified to sell MPI products once they attain an insurance license from the
Insurance Council of Manitoba.
