  • Adjuster Success Method – Series 1

    Veteran adjusters share best practices for getting hired, what tools you’ll need to get the job done, and explain what to expect and how to successfully close your first claims in this one-of-a-kind new training course.




  • 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.

    • Construction 101 covers how to determine and estimate the type, grade, and quantity of building materials, as well as the basics of the construction process and rooftop assessments and inspections. It was created by a veteran adjuster and is a great precursor to XM8 training.
    • 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 Adjuster Success Method course is a new, one-of-a-kind career training webinar. It was created by veteran adjusters who wanted to share what they wished they’d known when they started – everything from how to find work, what tools you’ll need, how to adjust and inspect your first claim, and most importantly, how to set yourself up for a lasting and successful career.

    New Mexico grants reciprocal licenses to adjusters who are licensed in their home state. New Mexico will also accept a Designated Home State (DHS) license from an adjuster whose home state does not license.

    In 2022, New Mexico added the following clarifications to its reciprocity policy:

    “The Office of Superintendent of Insurance will accept a DHS license for reciprocity purposes only when the individual’s home state does not require licensure as an adjuster, permit a staff adjuster to be licensed as an independent adjuster, or the individual’s home state licensing requirements do not meet the criteria required by the OSI to become licensed as an adjuster in New Mexico.”
