Justin went to school at (VAS) Veteran Adjusting School and was working within 12 days of graduation. That’s because VAS provides job placement for their graduates with their 15 (and growing) trusted insurance partners. Since Justin graduated from Veteran Adjusting School, he makes his own hours as an independent adjuster.

VAS is the most thorough insurance adjuster training program. In Justin’s own words, “They left no stone unturned.” Within 6 weeks the student has the skills of an adjuster who can work day claims, staff, or catastrophe adjusting.

CAT Adjusting

When a catastrophic event (hurricane, hail storm, etc.) hits, insurance agencies send out CAT adjusters to assess the damages and see how much money their homeowners are entitled to under their policy. VAS focuses on CAT adjusting because it is the maximum training and highest paying with the potential to make $70,000 – $100,000 in 6-9 months.

The Veteran Adjusting School’s course includes:
  • 30 Adjuster Subjects Taught
  • 40 Real World Claims
  • Xactimate Level 2 Training
  • Mentorship Through & Even After Graduation
  • In-the-field Adjuster Training
  • Laptop & Tools
  • And More

VAS Mentors

Veteran Adjusting School’s mentors give the student an invaluable resource of knowledge throughout the education. VAS mentors help the student through the course, through licensing, and even through their first claims in the field.  

Storm Simulations

VAS provides real-world simulations that deliver a hands-on experience for the student. This allows for a more “on the job” practice which helps clear up any questions a student might have when estimating a claim on their own.

Catastrophic insurance adjusters can gross between $70,000 to $100,000 in 6 to 8 months. This career is matched up perfectly with the skills and characteristics developed in the armed forces. As a licensed postsecondary vocational school that is VA approved for tuition assistance under the 9/11 GI Bill ®, Veteran Adjusting School provides the most complete and comprehensive training for Veterans to become CAT Adjusters.

What is CAT Adjusting?

When a region is devastated by a natural disaster (hurricane, hail storm, wildfire, etc.), catastrophic or CAT adjusters are deployed to the affected area to estimate damages for insurance agencies. They are independently contracted to represent the agency at the catastrophic event to assess how much money the insured homeowner is entitled to under their policy.

The contracted adjuster is paid for every claim that they are able to close. This is why there is so much opportunity for a hard working adjuster to make up to 6-figures during the storm season.  

Why Are Veterans Ideal CAT Adjusters?

The skills that are developed in the military are essential to being successful in the catastrophic adjusting field. It takes hard work, self-motivation, organization, and dedication to excel in the career of CAT adjusting.

As a representative of the insurance agencies, you must be able to uphold the company’s reputation and be able to work efficiently to close claims. The work must be conducted with an understanding of the customer’s loss after the tragic event.

Where is the best place to find claims adjuster training? Whether you want to be a day to day claims adjuster for a local insurance agency or you want to be an independent catastrophic insurance adjuster, VAS is the best choice for claims adjuster training.

What makes VAS the best school when it comes to creating fully trained adjusters? Four things:

  1. Job Placement – VAS works with more than 15 insurance partners to ensure that their students have employment right out of school.
  1. 100% Graduation Rate – Because VAS has a dedication to its students and insurance partners, they only accept students that are committed and dedicated to becoming a top insurance adjuster.
  1. Mentorship – VAS mentors students through licensing, software training, in-the-field training, and even helps the student after graduation with their initial claims to ensure the best work product.
  1. Tuition Assistance – As a VA approved postsecondary vocational school, VAS is qualified for tuition assistance for veterans of the armed forces. The school also has a program for tuition assistance for non-veterans.

Although the VAS 6-week course covers complete training for day to day claims adjusting, the school specializes in (CAT) catastrophe insurance adjuster training. Why? Because CAT adjusters make between $70,000 – $100,000 in 6 – 8 months depending on their dedication and ability to close claims. As it is said throughout the CAT adjuster community, “You can make 6 figures in 6 months.” Most are independent adjusters contracted with IA firms to estimate damages for homeowners based on their policy coverage.

Because they are contracted and make their own hours, a CAT adjuster must be hard-working, dedicated, organized, and self-motivated. This is one of the reasons VAS seeks out Veterans,as they come with a skill set ingrained through military training and service. However, anyone displaying these characteristics would make an excellent candidate for VAS and the catastrophic claims adjusting career.

Under the 9/11 GI Bill ® the VA will assist Veterans with school tuition for schools that have been approved by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. This means that if you are a Veteran of the armed forces you can have most of your schooling paid for at one of these schools. (VAS) Veteran Adjusting School is a VA approved school that was founded on the principle of helping Veterans become fully trained catastrophic insurance adjusters.

Why CAT Adjusting For Veterans?

Catastrophic insurance adjusting is an ideal fit for Veterans. A CAT adjuster will typically make between $70,000 – $100,000 in 6 – 8 months during the storm season. They make their own hours but must have a specific set of skills that are instilled at every level of the armed forces. A CAT adjuster must be hard-working, self-motivated, organized and dedicated.

What is CAT Adjusting?

When a catastrophic storm (hurricane, hail, etc.) hits a region, insurance companies need to send out independent contracted CAT adjusters to assess the damages to the policyholders’ properties. The adjuster will leave on a storm deployment going from house to house estimating how much compensation the homeowner is entitled to under their insurance policy. A catastrophic insurance adjuster is usually paid by the amount of claims they can close. This is why a more motivated individual can typically make 6 figures in 6 months.

Veteran Adjusting School

VAS is a 6-week intensive course that fully prepares students for storm deployment. With in-the-field training, software training, and mentoring (through and beyond licensing); it is the only VA-approved school for CAT adjusters. VAS has 100% graduation rate and 96% job placement rate. VAS works with Insurance Partners to ensure graduates will be hired upon graduation. In fact, many Insurance Agencies look for the VAS certificate to find adjusters that can deliver quality and comprehensive estimates.
