Are you a veteran looking for the right trade school that you can apply you 9/11 GI Bill ®, VA benefits toward tuition. Then you might want to consider (VAS) Veteran Adjusting School which has 98% job placement for its graduates. VAS is a catastrophic or CAT adjusting trade school that was built specifically to get veterans to work in the rewarding career of catastrophe adjusting.

What Is CAT Adjusting?

When an area is affected by a catastrophic event (earthquake, hurricane, hailstorm, wildfire, etc.), insurance agencies and independent firms deploy independent CAT adjusters to perform inspections for their customers. The adjuster will spend weeks to months in the devastated region assessing how much compensation the policyholder is entitled to under their policy.

Some of the benefits of catastrophe adjusting include:

  • High earning potential – CAT adjusters are paid per claim closed which allows for a high income for hard working adjusters. In fact, a common phrase among CAT adjusters is, “Make 6 figures in 6 months.”
  • Helping people in need – When a catastrophic event hits, you are able to help people put their lives back together by getting them the compensation that they need.
  • Vacation time – CAT adjusters typically only work 6-9 months during storm season. This leaves plenty of vacation time.
  • Self-employed – Catastrophe adjusters are independently contracted by insurance agencies and independent firms. They pick what jobs they want and make their own hours.

Why Veterans Are Great CAT Adjusters

In order to have any kind of real success in the catastrophic adjusting field, an adjuster must be hard-working, dedicated, self-motivated, and organized. This is why veterans make ideal candidates for the industry.

 

These are also the attributes that VAS is looking for in their students. VAS is not looking for students, they are looking for commitment. Do you have what it takes?

(VAS) Veteran Adjusting School is an insurance adjuster trade school that is approved for VA tuition assistance. VAS has a 100% graduation rate and over 96% job placement rate. These graduates are now working for the 15 VAS insurance partners throughout the country.

However, VAS concentrates on CAT (catastrophic) insurance adjusting because it is rewarding and has a higher earning potential. In fact, the earning potential is so high that a common phrase among CAT adjusters is, “Earn 6 figures in 6 months.”

What Is CAT Adjusting?

Whenever a catastrophic event (like a hurricane, flood, wildfire, etc.) affects a region, insurance agencies send out CAT adjusters to assess the damages for their customers. The CAT adjusters will estimate how much compensation the insured customer is entitled to under their policy.

Why Are Veterans Perfect For CAT Adjusting?

After the catastrophic event hits, the CAT adjuster is deployed to a certain region for weeks to months at a time. They are independently contracted by the insurance agencies and are required to make their own hours. The adjuster will be paid per claim closed. This is why there is such a high earning potential.

The CAT adjusting field also requires the adjuster to be self-motivated, organized, hard-working and dedicated. Veterans tend to encompass these characteristics as these traits are ingrained into them by the military. This is not an easy career but it is highly rewarding for those that are able to function with these characteristics in the catastrophic environment. Do you have what it takes?

Veteran’s Journey To A Rewarding Career – Sean O.

I spent years not working, volunteering my time towards useful ventures supporting my children’s schools. I was so far out of the job market that it became a challenge to sell myself into new career paths with a long absence in employment as well as facing the challenges of marketing an Infantry Officer. I sent out over 500 professionally designed resumes to various industries utilizing the strengths that those in the military find useful, which earned only a handful of interviews and no new career paths, emerged.

I discovered VAS as one of 110 companies at my local Veterans Job fair in Orlando. I met Guy Grand that day and it has been a whirlwind since then. We spoke for the better part of 30min, by far longer than any other booth at the fair. I came home, read his online book, and signed up for my Insurance Adjusting license that week. I attempted to get signed up for the course that started the following month, but was sad to learn that it was full. I was able to sign up for the April course and it was a great time to go.

Everyone is skeptical at the cost and time put into the program, and the real question of “does it really put you into a new career path as easy as the brochures say?”. The short answer is YES! The long answer is YES, but if you don’t put the effort into your employment then your opportunities will dry up. You need to be ready for immediate deployment if you are attending school during the storm season and be ready to apply with a variety of firms so that you have a multitude of companies with exposure around the nation. I attended VAS with 5 state adjusting licenses, finished with 7, and now have 10. Combine that with the 16 states that do not have licenses and I have 26 states covered.

I took a needed vacation with my family immediately following the conclusion of VAS. Everyone else in my session deployed to Canada immediately upon graduation! Upon returning home I was receiving claims within 4 days. I have been working daily claims for two firms in Florida while waiting for a catastrophe to come in. In the mean time I have been busy applying with the VAS partner IA Firms to ensure that I have the maximum amount of personal coverage across those 26 available states. Additionally, to bolster my new resume I have been busy working on continuing education through VAS online resources and regional classes specializing in water and fire damages. I am on the CAT rosters of 10 companies with exposure in varied locations around the country and I am getting certified with the nation’s largest insurance carrier at the end of next month. This is my new career path. There is work out there. VAS can give it to you. Make the call.
