Before you go to the trouble and expense of State Farm certification or any certification, do something simple, just go out your front door and start walking, yeah, I know it is 102 degrees out there, pick a destination and walk all morning, for the purposes of this it helps to carry something, anything will do, some water and 2 pounds of beans, it would be best to meet the State Farm dress requirements, after about 4 hours of walking stop and eat lunch, then start walking again, after about 4 hours stop, eat supper. Now, after supper take the daily newspaper, open your laptop and start copying the news paper. Type until about 10 pm, take a shower and get some rest, sleep tight because tomorrow is new day and a repeat of today. At the end of the week, 7 days, start thinking about next week, because we are going to do this everyday for at least a month.
If you physically or mentally unable to complete 60 days of just simple walking and typing 16 hours a day for 60 days you are not going to be able to climb, inspect and close 5 roof claims a day for 60 days.
If you can't close 5 claims a day 7 days a week for 60 days certification is a moot point. You should go to Wal-Mart, Home Depot, McDonald's and fill out the computerized application. You will not be able to make enough money for Catastrophe adjusting to be worth the trouble. State Farm is looking for athletes, when you are working for State Farm you are competing for a chance at a job on the next storm. The adjusters who excel on the instant storm will be called on the next storm and if you can't keep up, well, truthfully, you are not going to receive the call.
