    I am in the middle of taking my NY General Adjusters Licensing course, and would like to learn the ropes with a seasoned veteran of the trade. I have a backround in automotive ( mechanic for 21 yrs.) and have some construction projects under my belt, ie: foundations, brick work, dry wall and some framing. I am available Sundays and Monday's, or, after 6 Tues. - Sat., as I have a day job right now. I have taken insurance cources and do have a general knowledge of the beast. I would like to be a ladder monkey for someone willing to teach me the trade. Only problem is I live on Long Island, and would like to be near my area for now, atleast till I fiqure out if this is the job for me. Im not a kid, and have owned my own business, so, I will work and learn, not just stare into space.

    Tim,
    Did you have to take any special classes to learn the adjusting? I have been a mechanic for 25 years and now work in a dealership as a warranty coder and time keeper.I was wondering if this is a good base or do I need to be involved in an autobody shop also. Do you need to have a commercial drivers license to be able to adust? Thanks

    As you can tell, Im new to this and would like to be able to adjust on a part time basis to start, before I go full steam. Any help is greatly wecomed!

    If you are looking to be an Auto adjuster your best bet would be to go to work for an Auto body shop as an estimater trainee or apply to companies like Geico to work as one of their trainee staff. I have no idea of their requirements. I see no reason why you would need a CDL to be an adjuster.  There are also Auto Adjuting classes I believe available through Vale.

    Special classes? Too many to count over my 25+ year adjusting career. As far as heavy equipment goes I started with the heavy equipment class at Crawford U in Atlanta.
