I attended the Parr Inspections class last Friday.
Your contact that said he could knock out 30-40 per day is either 1.)NOT inspecting these properties according to the official methods and is in very serious trouble if caught. or 2.) Blowing a lot of hot air.
The FEMA inspection class is highly informative and is very well presented. THE LEGEND inspector during the Northridge earthquake managed 19 per day and was under suspicion. Turns out he WAS doing everything exactly correct. Just a great organizer and worker.

One adjuster told me he was able to knockout 30 – 40 per day in Houston to make some good money. Other than learning how to set up a good system to find a loss fast and using a digital camera it did not sound like adjusting experience. I am sure he said he did not go in the house. If you are in a location were the inspections are grouped well and you can make the $1K per day rate it could be attractive to some but I bet some are not able to hit those kinds of numbers.

I just completed the class with Parr Inspections. It is a good informative class, but it is different from insurance. Parr has a contract with FEMA to supply inspectors for disasters. They pay for transportation, usually a flight, or up to 500 miles if you drive and they pay $44.66 per inspection. You are responsible for your own housing. The inspections are to determine habitability as opposed to restoration to prior cat condition. They also supply the computer which is very specific, there are NO PAPER FILES. The class is very informative and definately is interesting, whether you plan to work for them or not.
