Let me introduce myself.... I have been contracting for 6 years and looking for advice on becoming a Cat adjuster. My name is George, I am 24yrs old, physically able to climb ( I rock climb), mobile (single) , and live in IL. I have been exposed to most every trade involved with residential dwellings with most of my education, certifications, and experience in concrete repair, as well as commercial and industrial coatings.
What steps / general knowledge would you advise to a person entering the Cat adjusting field to accomplish the following?
>Training is a must, what training agencies and which classes would you recommend as essential classes?
>What steps can a new adjuster take to make themselves more marketable to adjusting agencies?
>Are there any long term goals, specialty markets, or new certifications you would recommend that pay better?
>With knowledge of municipal storm and sanitary sewer components and processes, are there any niche services to provide there?
