With another year upon us without hurricanes causing any significant damage to U.S. property what is going to happen to the Cat adjusting community? Still see lots of ads for training schools. With the current situation all of the folks that took these courses must be saying I should of kept the fees in order to eat. Who is gonna remember the meagre amount of info these courses provide anyway. Better than nothing I guess but providing the answers to the exam did not really prepare anyone to adjust properly anyway. What are the veterans doing? Normally put enough money away to last from season to season but it's been two years. Daily Claims? I hear the big firms are slow. True? Lets see a state of the union. Your comments?
