    I have been contacted by 4cast Claims, LLC out of Stephenville, TX in regards to working claims for them. The catch is that I have to pay $685.00 for a 3 day mandatory certification course to work claims for them.  Does this sound right? I've never really heard anything good about having to pay a company to work for them. I have not been able to find any negative information on the company or positive information on the internet or through the BBB. Do anybody have any information or experience with this company?

    My 4cast for that company is not good.. Sounds like the scam US Adjusting Services used to run ! Why would you pay a company to run claims for Give me your money upfront and we'll call you once we get claims in your area, I doubt they have claims, or they would have adjusters beating down there door right now.

    .........................................................................................

    Sirmax/Tex/HuskerCat,

    in most examples of IA firms charging to learn "their way", in almost ALL cases I will shout from the rooftops to go the other way and save your money!!

    I along with many others have seen many "deployment offers" from certain vendors that are nothing more than creatively worded training solicitations.

    However with that being said, (it is MY opinion and others may differ)4CAST is NOT a 3 day turn and burn vendor masquerading as a functioning IA firm.

    Whilst they do charge for their training curriculum they are NOT a training vendor,  said curriculum is to train those adjusters who will work for 4CAST  real world knowledge and proven techniques on actual risks, working at height, learning how to diagram/measure/inspect roof systems accurately and efficiently. ( a rookie adjuster or ANY adjuster for that matter who is concerned with how fast they can scope a roof are bound to encounter 2 things GUARANTEED, accidents and mistakes)

    4CAST does NOT teach out of any book. One thing I find refreshing is that 4CAST will NOT take on all comers who have the training fee in their pockets. Most IA training vendors will take anyone with a pulse and checkbook.

    Yes,4CAST does in fact require the IA's to invest in them, but I have seen that 4CAST invests right back into said adjusters with support/equipment/XM8 scribes.

    Is 4CAST claims right for everyone? No. I am NOT saying that all rookies should flock to 4CAST.

    What I am saying is they are a legitimate IA firm. I would not describe them as a training vendor because it is NOT their intention to train the masses, it is their intention to train those individuals they want to become part of the 4CAST family.

    David, we BOTH know EXACTLY why you chose to respond to THIS particular thread.

    I went to the training program offered by 4cast claims in november of '09 and was thouroughly trained in xactimate, hands on real life situations, and was readily prepared for the liscensing exam (missed two questions). Once I completed the course I worked a couple storms for 4cast with good results. When I left 4cast to branch out on my own I have worked as an independant adjuster with another firm and a roofing company and found I knew more than or as much as some of the ten year vets. So if you want to call into question 4casts legitimacy I am living proof that they train well and will help you succeed in the industry.

    The training has to be approved by the state before it can be applied toward CE credits. I would imagine that this has significant paperwork and likely costly.

    I would never pay to be trained and promised a job at the end.  Sounds like those truck driving schools to me.
