0 Replies and 1679 Views Flying out from Alask for deployments?  1679  0 Started by  Sustra90u Hi, I'm thinking about becoming a CAT adjuster and I have some questions to ask. I'm hoping to move to Alaska. I was thinking that I could fly in for my deployments and rent a car and ladder. I was told that I could likely have most of my expenses paid off from my taxes. Do you think that would actually work Does anyone do anything like that I'm trying to figure out if there is a economical way that makes sense for me to live in Alaska and fly out for deployments. :No

0 Replies and 1478 Views Expectations for CAT claim adjusting.  1478  0 Started by  Sustra90u Hi, I'm thinking about becopming becoming a CAT adjuster and I'm trying to learn about the industry. I have some questions to ask about correct expectations that I should have about the industry. I was told that the average deployment for CAT claims is 3 to 4 weeks long and I can expect a total profit after all expenses to be $15-$20k on average. Does this seem accurate or not From what I've heard it seems like it can be difficult to get deployed when you have no experiance. On average... :No

1 Replies and 2668 Views Adjusters License Prep- study the textbook vs. online class?  2668  1 Started by  James1010 Well I bought and read the textbook 'Florida Adjusters Study Manual 27th Edition' and it was a total waste of time and money. The book is out of date and structured and written for someone pursuing their Insurance Agent/Underwriters license. The incredibly confusing writing style of the author made it impossible to successfully understand the material well enough to pass the 100 test questions in the back of the book. Additionally, everything I'm reading online confirms that the Florida State ex... :No

3 Replies and 2427 Views What line(s) of work are similar to adjusting?  2427  3 Started by  suzukini I had a fellow IA ask me the other day what lines of work are similar to adjusting as he is thinking about how to get out of this business.  I scratched my head and really didn't have an answer for him other than anything with customer service and analytical skills.  Now that I've had time to sit on it, I am driving myself nutty wondering what would I do if I wasn't doing this.  What would any of you suggest to someone wanting to leave this profession   :No

In fact I am still waiting to have my license in  my hand.   I've read a couple post here and will try not to come off too simple and idealistic.   My impression before I studied for my online course was that there would be 'staff' and 'independent' adjusters. I thought it best to try first as a staff adjuster. It would mean a moderate income and a chance to learn. I could branch out after I learned the job.&nbs... :No
