    I passed my third test today, man, they are hard :)  How long did it take you to pass the whole deal?

    I think it usually takes around 2-3 years at least to do the complete group of courses. ones that I have known that did it aggressively did two courses at a time, and there are (were) 2 sessions per year for a max of 4 a year. If you have completed any prior IIA designations (AIC, etc) you could and probably still get one or tweo courses waived for the final designation. The program isn't geared toward claims adjusting, but is an excellent program to complete to give someone a well rounded knowledge of the insurance business from underwriting, actuary work, risk management and claims. If you wanted to gear on something that is more claims oriented, the AIC program is excellent (and will waive one of the CPCU courses), and also the SCLA full program is very comprehensive. SCLA doesn't give you any credit toward the CPCU program, takes a good couple years for the full designation, and has various sub designations involved. You also get a ton of CE hours out of it, I think I had over 200 hrs one year, but no carry over...

    There guys, ya see? Our pal ain't all bad after all, maybe just only 13% bad? Once he purges that nasty contractor bilge from his system with these CPCU courses, he'll be well on his way to the greener cleaner pastoral fields of the wholesome world of insurance.

    Won't that be great? Then with his CPCU and a ten dollar bill he can buy a cup of coffee, a donut, and a gallon of gas.

    I'm aic already, took me 4 months to pass that one :) It does not give you any credits towards CPCU unfortunately. SCLA sounds great, I might pick that one up along the way. thanks for the info, though. I don't think it is anything more than some theoretical knowledge and looks nice on the resume. :)

    Ghost, are you ghosting me?

    I had a gentleman post some information about getting his Washington State Resident license and He posted a letter from the Insurance commissioner


    Here is a quote from the Insurance Commissioner:

    "You had asked me to research the RCW and WAC to define the adjuster special education which is listed in RCW 48.17.380(3)(d) and the trainee program in WAC 284-17-123. You had also mentioned your inability to find an agency or company willing to accommodate your need to fulfill the required 6-9 month adjuster trainee program. I’ve discussed this situation at length with my Deputy Commissioner and with our Legal department. This, of course, was not a short discussion nor was a definition or decision reached within a few minutes. You have my apologies for this taking a bit longer than I’d originally thought.



    What has been decided is that the resident special education for adjusters mentioned in RCW was not defined but allows latitude for determining what would be “evidence satisfactory to the commissioner that the individual or responsible officer of the business entity is qualified…” With this in mind, we have defined satisfactory special education for the resident adjuster applicant to be successful completion of the Associate in Claims designation. I have provided a link for what this entails (http://www.aicpcu.org/comet/program.../aic.htm). Once you have complete this designation and have provided proof of completion to this office, you will need to pass the WA state adjuster exam in order to obtain your license."


    I have heard that an AIC designation will exempt folks from an exam, but I have never heard of it being a requirement to take the Prometric exam.

    I have written about an Independent Adjuster Apprentice Program before and actually think this is a GREAT idea, but it just seems not in line with every other state, is this somehow a huge misunderstanding with the IC because I cannot find that AIC requirement anywhere in anything even on the Washington State DOI website.

    I got my CPCU in 2 years after I got my ARM. Only one exam was waived. If the people on this site are all claims professionals, I think the AIC is the one you should start with.

    I wish I had AIC. I knew an agent who started @15 as an office boy and got his CPCU at age 22. A sharp guy, now retired
