“Catastrophe insurance adjusting is truly one of the great hidden careers in America today. It is a job that is both rewarding and pays well, but almost no one knows about it.”
– Guy Grand Founder, Master-Adjuster Veteran Adjusting School, LLC
…great earning potential just 6 months after graduation!
Imagine a career you can start in as little as 3 months for less than the price of a decent work truck and gross over $100k, often working far less than full time, in your first year out!
One of the most amazing benefits of your new CAT career is recapturing control over your own time. You choose which storms you go out on, how long you stay out, how many weeks/months you want to rest and enjoy your earnings.
After all is said and done, one of the most profoundly rewarding outcomes of this powerful new career is that your work brings tangible aid, relief, and peace to folks going through incredibly tough times.

Everything a new adjuster would need to get started except a ladder and shoes!

Potential students must obtain a home state adjuster license first. This prerequisite will help the applicant to decide if they want to continue with enrollment and a career in insurance adjusting. VAS offers free guidance through this process for the committed applicant. However, this does not give you the field knowledge, experience, or necessary requirements to be a qualified insurance adjuster and obtain employment as a field adjuster. You must enroll in VAS to get a career.
Our Training Facility is located in Sedona, AZ. The classroom is designed with life size roof structures and attic crawl spaces and outfitted with dozens of construction products to help students easily identify products when in the field.
