HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BECOME AN ADJUSTER ANYWAY?

So, you are thinking about becoming an adjuster but you are having a hard time figuring out how much it is really going to cost you to get into the industry?  You are not alone.  There are not many places out there that will tell you about ALL of the costs associated with trying to break into the industry.  Licenses, tests, certifications, travel, training, field tools, apprenticing…for many adjusters, it ends up being much more than they first thought when they signed up for that $350 “Adjuster Training” course.  Don’t get frustrated.  If you know what you are getting into it is well worth it, but don’t be fooled into thinking that one simple course is all you are going to need.

Here is a short excerpt from my book “Catastrophic Insurance Adjusting – Making it Your Career” where I write about my experience trying to break into the industry “on my own”.

“There are training facilities and schools all over the country that claim to “make you an adjuster”, most for under $1,000. Don’t buy it! The course might be under a thousand dollars but your travel, lodging, equipment, and continuing education will cost you much more than that no matter what they tell you.
Going to a five-day course to learn about adjusting and getting your state license is only the beginning. Without continually working with the software (Xactimate), practicing writing estimates, learning the proper ways to measure, photograph, and write reports you will forget how to write a claim by the time you get deployed. The repetition needed can only come from experience or by attending a full-service vocational school that will mentor you until you are comfortable with adjusting and on your first storm.
As I mentioned before, the total cost of my education into the insurance adjusting field was over $12,000 and that was back in 2003. My first storm deployment as a trainee was over five weeks and only paid my out-of-pocket expenses.
What if there was a state regulated post-secondary vocational school that bundled all the costs into one tuition price and what if they offered a loan program that was interest-only for the first 18 months. If that opportunity had been available to me back in 2002 would I have taken that deal? – ABSOLUTELY!
If I would have had the mentorship of industry veterans along the way, that would have been priceless. That opportunity wasn’t available to me back then, but it is available, through VAS — our fully licensed and state board certified vocational training center, to you now. As you read further through this book you will learn that there is a way to get into the adjusting business and to know exactly what your cost of entry is to get into this well-paying career.”

BE YOUR OWN BOSS WITH A 6 FIGURE CAREER

 

BE YOUR OWN BOSS WITH A 6 FIGURE CAREER

What if I told you that with only 6 months training you could be your own boss, work 3 to 6 months a year, and make over $100,000 a year? You’d probably think “what’s the scam?” right. Well it’s true. An independent CAT (or catastrophic) adjuster can do all these things with the proper training and education.

What is an Independent CAT Adjuster?

When natural disasters (like a hurricane, tornado, or major storm) strikes, insurance companies need to hire qualified independent CAT adjusters to assess the damage and get their customers their much needed compensation. These adjusters are heavily compensated due to the extreme severity and urgency of the situation.

Insurance Adjuster School

INSURANCE ADJUSTING SCHOOL

Insurance companies need adjusters. But where do you train to become a successful insurance adjuster? Before you decide what insurance adjuster school you want, you should figure out what type of estimator you want to become. There are two types of insurance adjusters:

  1. 1.Independent Insurance Adjusters
  2. 2.Insurance Company Employees

Independent Insurance Adjusters

Independent Insurance Adjusters are contracted work from insurance agencies when they are in need of extra help. This is mainly the case when there is a catastrophic event.

Catastrophic or CAT adjusters are trained to handle all types of insurance claims, and can make 6 figures in 6 months. Some motivated CAT adjusters have been known to make $300,000 to $400,000 in 6 months estimating natural disaster events.

Insurance Agency Employees

Insurance agencies will generally hire and train their employees through their own adjusting school courses. To apply to an insurance agency you must have a high school graduation equivalent. Insurance employees will generally make between $25,000 – $60,000 a year.

Where to Train

Where do you find the best adjusting school? VAS or Veteran Adjusting School is the best school when it comes to training fully qualified successful catastrophic claims adjusters. The training received at VAS is so successful, (even though most insurance agencies will not hire estimators that have no experience) Veteran Adjusting schools insurance agency partners hires VAS for CAT events after graduation.
