    I currently own an adjusting business in Northern Minnesota. I am a small ma and pa show and am getting pushed out by bigger, less expensive companies. I have wanted to get into Cat work but did not plan on it this early. I am licensed in MN and OK multi lines. Do I need to get other licenses from other states? I see TX has classes to go to, do I need too? Also I will be looking into State Farm Cert. also. I have 9 years of property and auto adjusting experience, do I have a prayer getting into a few vendors or on some rosters? I appreciate your time and have enjoyed getting some information from this forum. Thanks Brian

    In the CAT industry,
    it is my opinion you should have in addition to your home state (Minnesota), non resident adjuster's licenses in Texas/Louisiana/Mississippi/Alabama/Florida. You already have Oklahoma. Some folks run more licenses, but at a minimum I advise covering the Gulf coast states which have historically borne the brunt of severe weather.
    You could consider adding the states that comprise the Atlantic sea board.

    Since you are licensed in your home state of Minnesota as a resident adjuster, you are not required to take any state exam and can obtain most other states through reciprocity. You will have to pay all fees , background check, finger prints (if required) but no testing.

    I would surmise you have a very good chance of getting work (provided we experience inclement weather)

    Getting the State Farm certification through one of these IA firms Worley / Pilot / EA Renfroe / Eberl's is a good start.

    Thank you very much for your help. I tried getting on Pilot for the State Farm Cert. info but can't. Do I need to be on their roster for a login? Again Thank you for your assistance.
