Before you find out which educational curriculum provides the best vocational school, you need to know what vocation you want to study. Catastrophic (CAT) adjusting is a career you might want to consider when deciding your trade. Why? You can earn 6 figures in 6 months if you are dedicated and work hard.

CAT Adjusting

A CAT adjuster will go to catastrophic events (i.e. floods, hurricanes, major storms) and assess the damages of homes and commercial properties. They are independently contracted by the insurance companies to estimate how much money the carriers will pay on those damages, according to the homeowners policy. CAT adjusters typically work during the storm season, which lasts about 6-8 months a year. They are paid per the insurance claim they are able to resolve for the carrier. So, if an adjuster is able to work hard and close out claims, there is a very high earning potential.


Because of the unusual work conditions, these types of adjusters are a rare breed. You must be well trained and well prepared to deal with the reality of a catastrophic event, much less work in it. Catastrophic adjusters work long hours and long weeks estimating customer compensation.


In order to be successful as a catastrophic claims adjuster, you need to have the proper licensing and training. So, where do you find the best vocational school for CAT adjusting?
