16 Replies and 13098 Views Independent Claims Adjuster Apprentice Program  13098  16 Started by  CatAdjusterX Hello folks   Of many important topics discussed on most ADJUSTER related websites, the most common subject and easily the most 'contentious'  topic seems to be the mass exodus of individuals that have swelled our ranks long past the point of 'SATURATION'    We can almost trace this exodus to it's beginning as I myself came to this industry(along with many others) back in 2004 in response to the 4 hurricanes that made land...

4 Replies and 10535 Views State Farm Certification  10535  4 Started by  jdacree I just took my State Farm Cert, sponsered by Renfroes, in Ft Worth 2 weeks ago.  This class, according to the Renfroes instructors, was the first use of the REVISED IDL, and test.  The first testing on policy yielded a fail rate of 50.  Part of the problem was that the test contained a number of 'tree' coverage questions that were not covered in enough detail during the IDL, and required utilizing about 1/3 of the training time the next day to clarify.  Another area that wa...

Its a good place to make a decent living, but not 100 of the people who try succeed.

11 Replies and 10585 Views Starting out at Pilot  10585  11 Started by  RSC I started out at Pilot (actually CMS) a month ago as an O/A buddy but I was snatched up by Dispatch after a week. My goal is to become an OA and I feel like I can move up rather quickly, but I have some questions about becoming an adjuster. First, what licenses should I get first (Alabama is obviously my home state) Second, can I become an inside adjuster with out being 'pilot' Finally, how much do inside adjusters make &160; Thanks

16 Replies and 3958 Views Training School Wars and Integrity  3958  16 Started by  JimAustin So many posts i read on this forum are about certain schools being dishonest and how you shouldn't attend their classes or how one company is so much better than the other.  Some very seasoned and experienced adjusters have posted several replies on this site that in my opinion they should be ashamed of.  Where has the honor gone in our industry  Each and every one of you that are professional bloggers on this site.  Take a good look in the mirror and ask yourselves if maybe...

2 Replies and 3363 Views Alabama Non-Resident Licensure; Office Requirement  3363  2 Started by  jtcwik Good Morning!Recently I have encountered some push back from the Alabama DOI that requires an office location for a non-resident adjuster license.  This in and of itself is in direct contradiction with a 'non-resident' status.  Also, the statute was written pre-internet in 1971.  It is my belief that the intent of the law was for records access, which at the time and most of us 'seasoned' professionals will recall, consisted of paper files.  My firm currently uses an Online C...

13 Replies and 4524 Views Hazmat for the upcoming Hurricane Season  4524  13 Started by  wstj I'm curious about the effect of the recent oil spill,(leak), on the upcoming hurricane season with respect to training. The introduction of oil into the storm surge is going to make an already difficult task considerably worse. And I wounder about whether each adjuster will be required to go through some sort of hazmat training. The EPA will surely be all over it. Would such training be handled at the storm site or would it make sense to be proactive and attend a class, somewhere And where migh...

18 Replies and 3491 Views Certifications and licenses guarantee a worse product  3491  18 Started by  Bobabooey Adjusting has become similar to a lot of business. The government forces adjusters or agents or plumbers or whatever to get licenses. This does several things. It raises revenue for the governent, it allows the government to get involved in private business, and it makes a lot of money for schools that open that make a profit off of the governments law. No longer is it important to have experience and knowledge. It has been replaced by certifications and licenses. For instance if you try...

First off, I would like to thank all of you seasoned adjusters that take the time to answer questions such as this.   I will soon be a 3-day newbie, and it seems there is a lack of hands on education in my area (LaPorte Texas: 30 min east of Houston)  A friend I worked with just finished a course and will soon have his license, and we are both concerned that IF we are called for an event that we could possibly make mistakes that would at best cause us to be sent home and not be calle...
