To work as a damage insurance professional, one must:
Only after having successfully completed these steps does an individual become a member of the Chambre de l'assurance de dommages and receive authorization to act as an agent, broker or claims adjuster. In order to keep their certificate, individuals must fulfill two main obligations:
Keep Their Skills Up to Date
In order to keep their professional skills up to date, and indeed improve them, all damage insurance agents and brokers, and claims adjusters must take a minimum of 20 hours of training every two years, barring which their certificate will not be renewed. This measure is designed to ensure that ChAD members’ skills always remain up to date.
Respecting a Code of Ethics
As is the case for all liberal professions, damage insurance agents and brokers, as well as claims adjusters are governed by a code of ethics. If they do not fulfill their duties and obligations to the public, they may lose their right to practise.
