Man you guys are making out the adjustment world to be a pretty tough gig. I think AMCAT USA apparently sends you to catastrophe areas, but take forever to pay you. Any recommendations on getting into the industry? I live near Irving, so I wanted to take their courses.
I cannot speak for working for them because I never have, however they are indeed a top notch school. You must understand that the knowledge necessary to obtain your Texas license is not the end of the learning experience, it is only the beginning. If you take the combo course(licensing/XM8/Adjuster101), understand that again, the knowledge gleaned from these courses are NOT designed to prepare you to begin working claims upon, "graduation". These courses merely give you rudimentary knowledge of the industry and the preferred estimating software of the CAT industry.. XM8. They give you a solid foundation upon which you can add to as you continue to learn the industry

Every time you do clean up of major screwups we become lower then pond scum or even the sludge on the bottom of the pond. You can make good money on that type of clean up, but our value to the companies goes down, if it can get lower. Remember a claim over paid by telephone can be recovered in increased premiums, but paying adjusters twice to do a claim costs policies lost due to poor customer service and the adjusting costs can not be used to justify a rate increase.
