I would never have understood the material required had I not taken this course. As a first-timer, just entering into this industry, he (Doug) has helped a great deal.

I liked how we managed to take two textbooks full of material and break it down it manageable pieces.

For a seminar series on a topic such as life insurance, Doug did an incredible job at captivating his audience. He made it very interesting and easier to comprehend while adding some humour to the topics.

Excellent seminar. Course material was very clear and sufficiently detailed without being overwhelming. Doug knows his stuff, not only with respect to the insurance industry and products, but offers great advice on preparing and writing the exams.

Having already passed my certification exam with CSI, I wanted some additional insight into what/how to study for the final LLQP exam. This course and the instructor gave me the confidence I needed to go for the provincial exam. Great examples and well spoken instructor. He is clearly very knowledgeable in the industry and not just book smart.

Doug was great. He took the time to answer all questions, articulated the more complex answers as simply as possible and made everyone feel comfortable. He was quite humorous as well. I met some great folks in the industry and I definitely feel more prepared for the exams.

The training gave me everything I needed to be prepared for both my qualification exam and the provincial exam. Doug was excellent in communicating the items that were tested and that allowed me to be able to focus on those particular areas to increase my understanding. I initially tried the self-study method for completing my LLQP but quickly found it was tough to stay focused and on task. Attending the class was the best thing I could have done as it allowed me to verbalize my thoughts in a classroom setting and receive instant feedback as to my comprehension of the current topic.
I am happy to let you know that I passed my qualification exam the Monday following the seminar and went on to write the Provincial exam 2 weeks later and increased my score.
Thank you Doug!!!!

Doug has a way of simplifying confusing concepts and making them easy to understand. The class was organized, with tons of knowledge testing content, case studies and materials, with a focus on the content that is heavily tested.

I wrote and passed my Provincial exam on January 8th. The LLQP Seminar was great; classes have been well organized by a skilled instructor; the materials are summary simple but detail; it gave me an overall review of entire text book and assisted me to achieving my exam. Definitely I will come back for my continuing education and it’s my pleasure to recommend Foran Financial to my co-workers and friends.

Doug is an excellent instructor, ensuring everyone really understands a question before moving on. I feel extremely prepared to face the LLQP exams. although I fully read the (course content) prior to attending, I have learned so much more and understand 'Why' instead of just memorizing information.

Maralyn Jackson, Branch Manager, March 2014

Excellent! Excellent! Professional and very knowledgeable. Great pace.

John Cucciella, SVP, Dundee Securities

Hi Doug,
Just wanted to send you an email to personally thank you for preparing me for my LLQP pre-qualifier and the Provincial. I have successfully completed both exams and I'm working with my licensing department now to have my Ontario License issued.
It was a pleasure to learn from you and Thank you again for clarifying the content for me. You were the little voice in my head while I was writing.

Doug is amazing! Given the amount and level of the information and how long we were sitting in a classroom environment he kept me interested and engaged. Loved his tips and don’t know what I would have done without it (the seminar.) The seminar really made sense of all the information.
