4 Replies and 3213 Views San Antonio area intern opportunity?  3213  4 Started by  fonewiz I would like to find an experienced adjuster who uses Xactimate on a daily basis to adjust property claims (homes, businesses, structures) and ride with/assist him/her for a few hours a week. Maybe I can be of assistance in some way as a helper in exchange for some OJT which will help when I eventually get called for CAT adjusting.   I have pretty much zero experience in the adjusting business. I do have a P & C license as an agent but have never used it and I plan to get my all lines...

5 Replies and 5917 Views AMCAT training  5917  5 Started by  fbhalljr I went through the AMCAT training to see if I would like to try cat adjusting as a new career. I went in with no real hope of getting on a roster, just checking it out. However, I passed the class and was offered a contract with them and put on their roster. Does anyone know anything about this company I haven't done any work with them and don't want to if they have a bad rep, but I can't find anything on them on these forums.

0 Replies and 6349 Views Training-New topic-Look in the Gallary section for real hail photos  6349  0 Started by  Ray Hall Thanks to Janice Toll for some great photos on composition roof and vinyl siding damage. The only thing missing was the plastic water hose in the grass that was broken by the hail. Some of you working adjusters should post some new photos . A good long shot of a test square with the bare minimum would be good.

10 Replies and 4538 Views REPORT WRITING - BEST TIME?  4538  10 Started by  Coach D   Hello,   I would like to request some input from seasoned adjusters regarding the best time to complete reports.   For example, some adjusters will scope houses for the day, return to the hotel, and report write in the evening. Others like to scope, then write report on-site in the claimants house, or in their truck, then discuss the report with the claimant. Others scope, leave to a street around the corner, write report in vehicle, and to t...

4 Replies and 5580 Views Dallas State Farm IDL  5580  4 Started by  2roadrunners I will be arriving in Dallas (DFW) on the the 14th of this month for State Farm's IDL class and certificate. I will be staying at the Days Inn across the highway from the Sheraton Grand Hotel where the IDL class will be held. I'm sure I can get a shuttle to the Days Inn following the registration on the same day. To conserve cash, I will not be renting a car thinking the walk will do me good. However, IF there happens to be anyone going to the same class and happens to have a car, I'd sure appre...

1 Replies and 2792 Views Online Testing? Need Opinions  2792  1 Started by  Goldust          I am located in Montana so I was looking at taking the online testing available online for $299.      I have close to 10 years experience in Cat & regular adjusting all lines.   Here is the catch I have been away from it for 7 years. Is there any snags I might run into by taking the online test over the regular 3 day classroom test   All opinions appreciated.

I received a call today from a company I have signed up with (no calls for work yet) asking if I'd be interested in participating in the SF IDL class coming up on 4-15-09.

My question is this: I noted in some previous discussions that SF has the classes in many locations across the country. I gather ...
