“The DEC involves a comprehensive program and opens the door to several professions in the insurance industry, which is quite rare among Cegep technical programs.”

DEC Graduate

 “After I finished high school in 2010 I started the DEC in Insurance and Financial Advisory Services at the Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon and some insurance companies offered students summer jobs. This is how I started working in property and casualty insurance, specifically in compensation.”
