There are many adjuster training schools out there. A great many of them offer outstanding results and can also boast a large number of successful alumni.
Yes, it’s true: There is a lot of training that you can get to become an independent adjuster that concentrates on one or a few aspects of the work that we do: one school may concentrate on the estimating software, another school may excel at providing construction knowledge, and yet another that focuses on customer experience, and so on.
But there is one school that synthesizes every aspect of claims handling into one comprehensive school.
The Veteran Adjusting School 6 week program was designed by independent cat adjusters with decades of experience between them. The classroom and field coursework is taught by experienced independent adjusters. Students receive an Xactimate Level 2 Certification in the first week.
But is it worth it?
Consider this: outside of specialized engineering and math degrees, a college graduate with a Bachelor’s degree can count on an average starting salary less than $40,000 a year. And that’s after spending 4 or more years and an average of $127,000 total (including room and board) at a liberal arts university.
Imagine if you had the potential to earn $100,000 a year or more and you only had to spend $22,000 to do it? Not only that, but instead of 4 YEARS in school, you only need to spend 6 weeks and you had a very high chance of immediate job placement THE DAY YOU ARRIVED AT SCHOOL?
VAS students side-step the 2-4 year experience requirement that many IA firms have for new adjusters. In addition, VAS partners with more than 25 Independent Adjusting firms for job placement assistance.
So I’ll leave it up to you to decide if the most expensive adjuster training school is worth it to you.
Veteran Adjusting School is not easy to get into, but compared to weekend bootcamps, ride-alongs with adjusters who are unskilled in training, and 3-5 day adjuster crash courses, isn’t it worth it to give yourself the best chance of success by seeking out the highest quality training?
