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:
RESIDENTIAL ADJUSTING 101
Claims Adjuster Training Institute leads in the property adjuster training space. Residential Adjusting 101 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?
Residential Adjusting 101 will give you 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.
In Residential Adjusting 101, you’ll put your Xactimate skills to work learning residential adjusting best practices over 4 days of immersive hands-on training in our Dallas training facilities. Built like adjuster theme parks, you’ll experience real world claim simulations in our 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:
Residential Adjusting 101 is best for individuals with little to no property adjusting experience who want a solid introduction to the property adjusting role. 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 Adjusting 101, 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.
