Hello,

I have found this to be a very useful forum. Thanks in advance for all the information. I am looking to change careers and property claims adjusting looks like a good fit. I have found some online training websites. Where is a good guide for a step by step process to get in the business? Thanks, Dan



Ok, I guess I do not know what I'm doing. I have no idea how this ended up in Auto Insurance. I'm interested in Property Claims. If anyone knows how move this to the right forum, please let me know.

No worry Dan, I'm sure that lakemen will take care of it.



Anyways, I guess to become an adjuster you're first required to obtain the license to operate in the field. And for that you should enroll yourself with the coaching institute. Most of the states desire that the aspiring adjuster should undergo forty hours of training in order to receive the operating permit. May be inquiring with the state department of license help you in getting more information.



Take care!!!

Thanks Rupert,



Looks like you are right on with your help. I'm in Michigan and the information is overwhelming and a little confusing. I'm just trying to sort it out. I was hoping the state's website would have a checklist like format to get me to my goal. Looks like the are provider and non-provider licenses and different training. I suppose if it would not hurt to be over trained. I'm hoping to ease myself into the business because of time and money. So I was looking for a self paced training program and then getting work. It appears that companies want people who are trained, which I can't really blame them for. Thanks for the response.

Dan

Check out license2go.com. They have the online pre licensing courses for all state licenses.



I would also talk to several adjusters locally and see if they would be willing to mentor you. That way you could get a real feel of what the job is really like on a day to day basis and what it takes to be good at it.
