Why CAT Insurance Adjusting?

6 Figure Earning Potential

You’ll receive the tools and skills required to be field ready in six weeks. Catastrophe adjusters typically work during the storm season handling homeowner’s claims as independent insurance adjusters. An adjuster’s income depends on their work ethic and ability to close claims. Although CAT adjusters must work hard during Storm Season, they have plenty of time off to enjoy their above average income. 

Self Employed

Insurance Adjusters work as independent contractors for insurance agencies. This means that they create their own schedules. Claims adjusters act as a representative of the agency that contracted them but have the freedom of being their own boss.

Why VAS?

  • Connections – VAS has partnered with many Independent Adjusting Firms (IA Firms) to provide jobs for our graduates right out of school. In fact, most of these Firms prefer to deal with VAS graduates because of the comprehensive training our students receive.

The VAS program provides hands-on training as the student is able to practice claims adjusting in a real-world setting with the guidance of instructors.
  • Complete Skill SetVAS Graduates enter the workforce with the knowledge needed to perform both CAT claims and daily claims.
