Doug is very knowledgeable in this industry. I was very impressed with his knowledge and willingness to stay after (class) or on a break to answer questions and help. I am very glad I had a chance to participate in Doug’s class.

I would rate Doug an 11 (out of 10) if I could. Very knowledgeable about the subjects but was able to explain this at a level I could follow so that eventually I could grasp it in full.
Workshop turned a mountain into a hill and even paved the road for you. Helped me a ton; I had passed three out of four qualifying exams already before leaving. The workbooks were extremely beneficial to review before the exams. Thanks Doug!

Doug really knows his stuff. The workshop is a great way to talk through the course content with other individuals with varying degrees of knowledge instead of trying to learn it on your own.

Doug came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Doug Planche lived up to the billing. The workshop helped reinforce the material. Effective in the retention of the data in order to attain your license. I liked the team environment being able to bounce ideas and concerns off folks who are in the field going through it.

Doug was a great instructor. His on board examples were very helpful. Would definitely take it again! Hopefully I won’t have to.

Sarah Finateri, Scotia Wealth

Doug was an excellent instructor. He did a great job explaining difficult concepts. He related the material to real life occurrences. He was energetic, happy to receive our questions and was very personable.

A lot of material to cover, but the materials were well organized and tests were very helpful. The layout and format of the materials made rules and concepts easier to understand.

A very detailed review of materials to amply prepare for Provincial exams. What did I like best about the program? The teacher Doug, and learning as a group.

Andrew Thompson, Canadian Sales Director, MetLife

I am just letting you know that I passed all four elements of the provincial LLQP exam handily. I found the provincial exams easier than the practice tests provided in the Foran program and the Advocis LLQP certification exams.

 I thank you for your sage advice and insights as I prepared for the exam, it was much appreciated.
