“I found PNC learning to be immensely helpful while I was studying for my grade 1 exam. Jack breaks down the textbook material so that it’s much easier to absorb and apply to situational questions. The course was easy to follow and covers everything I needed to know for the exam. I spent two weeks studying this course and was able to pass on my first attempt. It’s also one of the most affordable courses out there. I couldn’t recommend it more! Will definitely be using PNC for future courses!”

"Before PNCL I had tried the exam multiple times, spent a lot of money on other courses and was quite frustrated. Thank you Jack for making your General insurance program detailed, structured and easy to absorb. The practice questions helped a lot! Really appreciate it man!"

"I was on my LAST attempt to the write the General Level 1 or else I would lose my position. I was so stressed out. I tried to self study by reading the textbook, but there was so much material and I would get overwhelmed and flustered. I found PNC Learning and decided it was worth a shot. Jack's course was so easy to understand and he explained things in such a way that helped me remember everything. With Jack's course, I passed on my third attempt. I got to keep my job and can finally sleep at night not worrying about tomorrow. THANKS JACK. I recommend his courses to everyone now and our office will be using PNC Learning as a recommendation for our staff when studying. Thank you, Jack."

"Hi Jack, I have great news... sat the exam yesterday and I passed. Your notes really helped. I listened as you broke it down and gave examples that made me understand in more detail how each policy works. I panicked a bit when I saw how the exam was set up but I remembered how you broke down the policies and said to look at the resultant facts which assisted me."

"I wasn't actually sure about my impression of the course until I actually took the Alberta Gen 1 exam. Once I went into the exam however, I found that everything you had provided through the course made it extremely easy to not only understand the questions that were asked in the exam, but to also answer them in a quick manner! Which was really nice. Now that I have the Gen 1 course done, it only really made sense to go do the Gen 2 course through you as well. Thanks for everything so far!!!"

"I passed my [Alberta] Level 1 test last week and am super excited about it. I start my new job in the new year. I honestly would not have done as well as I did without PNC Learning. When I go to write my Level 2 exam, I will be sure to use your program again. Ill also recommend it to anyone who needs a resource to help them study."
