FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What is the difference in the Total Package versus Essential?

    Our Adjuster Essentials offers the single course you need for your state. For some states it’s the required pre-licensing course and for others, it is an exam prep course. Either way, the essentials will prepare you to ace your state’s adjuster licensing exam.

    The Total Adjuster Package includes your state’s exam prep or pre-licensing course as well as additional training to help prepare you for the job itself. Having this knowledge before you start will mean you can get hired and start closing claims (and making money!) faster. The Xactimate Live Webinar will teach you how to work a claim from start to finish so you can hit the ground running when you get assigned those first claims. Our Getting Work Master Series is a one-of-a-kind video series hosted by our co-founder and veteran adjuster, Adam Gardiner. He shares an inside look at how independent adjusting firms work and tips on how to get noticed and get hired. Lastly, our Roofing 101 will walk you through the basics of roofing terminology, construction, and types of claims.
