    I am currently seeking a mentor that will allow me to ride along with them so that I will gain the PROPER knowledge/training from an experienced adjuster. I have a GA resident, and TX All Lines license. I have been deployed with Pilot years ago, but as an AA, so I have never seen field work. I know basics to the insurance industry but never trained on the intricate ways of being a good CAT adjuster.

    I live in metro Atlanta but am willing to travel within reason. If you can assist in anyway, please do so, it will be greatly appreciated.

    How much money are you looking to spend. There are several excellent working adjusters in the Atlanta area that would be glad to help you depending on the pay.

    Chuck I dont know what the "going rate" is. I don't have any claims, this would be a case of me following their lead. I know I am not ready for my own claims, cause I lack any field training.

     

    Given no claims of my own, what would you say is a fair fee?

    Reuben,

    Go to the National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters website and register with them. They have a mentoring program that they advertise where they match a rookie with a seasoned adjuster. They seem to have a large roster so maybe that will help you find someone. Good luck.

    Reuben, from where I sit it is difficult to impossible to determine what level of income you are expecting.

    If you're expecting the $26,000 year income that 52% of the people in the United States make, then training should be cheap. However, if you're expecting the income that most people think Cat Adjusters make, then training cost should be comparable to going to college. A semester at a private school in New York City will run you about $36,000 a year and a semester at most any college will run you about 15 to 25,000.

    Should I decide to mentor you, I provide the vehicle, I provide the insurance, liability and automobile, the tools and I have to stop what I'm doing. All things considered the mileage would run about $.60 a mile and the time would run about hundred dollars an hour and per diem would be charged at the comments per diem rate. So an eight hour day would run about $800 plus about 125 for per diem and mileage.

    Any mentoring that I do comes with a guarantee. You will learn something useful.
