It was no cake walk, but you did it. And now you’re ready to work, but you’ve discovered you need experience to get deployed.
So, wait. How do you break into property adjusting when you need experience to get work, but can’t get work without experience? There’s one simple answer to this question:
BECOME A CATI CERTIFIED ADJUSTER IN RESIDENTIAL ADJUSTER ESSENTIALS
Claims Adjuster Training Institute leads in the property adjuster training space. Residential Essentials is designed to train and equip emerging property adjusters to successfully handle the challenges and learn the ropes of scoping and estimating.
Today, leading national carriers send us their new hires to train and prepare them for their roles. And they send us their experienced adjusters for advanced training and refresher courses. Why not train with the adjuster school that the insurance companies trust?
As a CATI Certified Adjuster, you’ll learn and demonstrate the foundational property adjusting skills you need in a hands-on, real world training environment so you’re equipped on Day One to get the work, and get to work.
Set yourself apart from a sea of adjusters wanting that next deployment as a distinguished CATI Certified Adjuster. Potential employers will know at a glance that you’ve completed our rigorous training and assessment.
CATI Certified Adjuster: Residential Essentials is a one-day certification assessment that is administered on Friday of the Residential Essentials course week.
In Residential Essentials, you’ll put your Xactimate skills to work learning residential adjusting best practices over 4 days of immersive hands-on training. Our Dallas training facilities are built like adjuster theme parks where you’ll experience real-world claim simulations in dozens of structural mockups including living spaces, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and fully functional roof structures.
In addition to the intensive in-person training, you’ll receive several hours of on-demand training.
Between your in-person and on-demand training, you’ll learn the following:
CATI Certified Adjuster: Residential Essentials is best for individuals with little to no property adjusting experience who want a solid introduction to the property adjusting role.
Emerging adjusters who have completed a deployment will also benefit, with the opportunity to hone their new skills to ensure greater success the next time out.
While the practice work is oriented toward field adjusters, inside adjusters and examiners will reap great benefits from understanding the scoping and estimating process from the back end.
Participants in this course will be writing Xactimate estimates beginning on Day 1 of class. This course designed to hone your Xactimate skills in live claim simulations, but assumes you already have skills with the software of at least a proficiency level.
As such, as a prerequisite to taking Residential Essentials, participants must have completed CATI’s Xactimate X1 Skills Lab course OR have achieved the Xactimate Level 2 certification.
Additionally, our objective is to use the in-person class time to its fullest potential by engaging participants in as much hands-on practice as possible. As such, all on-demand pre-work courses must be complete before arriving to class.
Following enrollment, you will receive more information on the pre-work required. Expect to spend 15-20 hours in preparation for class.
Please note: The pre-work is essential to your success in class. No certificate will be issued for individuals who do not complete the required pre-work prior to reporting for class.
