A CAIB Immersion Course is a five-day, instructor-led class held in downtown Vancouver (Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
CAIB Immersion Courses are NOT held at our office on Granville Street in Vancouver. After you have registered and your payment is processed, you’ll receive an email with all the class details within 2 – 3 business days. If you don’t receive that email, contact .
The fee for a CAIB Immersion Course is $599 for IBABC members and $799 for non-members, including GST.
You may only pay an IBABC-member price if you’re currently employed by a brokerage that’s a member in good standing of IBABC.
For the fee you get:
- Intensive classroom instruction
- The textbook (mailed to you before the course starts)
- Supplementary course materials (resource guide and practice exam with marker's guide).
If you already have a current textbook and don't need to purchase a new one, minus that cost from your CAIB Immersion Course fee.
You’re required to read the entire textbook before the immersion course starts to be ready for in-class discussion.
We offer several CAIB Immersion Courses each year. There’s no CAIB 1 Immersion Course.
Exams for CAIB Immersion Students
Starting in 2020 there will be no paper-exam sittings for CAIB courses. Instead, you will write your exam online. As a CAIB Immersion student, you're strongly encouraged to write your exam early in the week after completing the five-day class. This is so the course content will still be fresh in your memory.
You must register separately for your online CAIB exam.
