This is the core roadmap that has helped thousands of people enter the independent adjusting/appraising space. It helps show you how to break into daily auto claims, which is a great source of revenue while you pursue the longer paths of Catastrophic or Property. Some people decide they love auto so much they never want to move on.

Links for Online Adjuster License Prep

You can find links to each state’s adjuster license exam prep or pre-licensing training at the link below.

If your state isn’t listed that means you live in a state that DOESN’T require a license and you should grab Florida instead.

Auto Training

Auto Damage Training

Having propery training on how to write auto damage estimates is vital to your success! Below are the two main options for adjusters to learn auto damage estimates.

IA Path Auto Damage Mentorship

This goes beyond training and includes an all-inclusive mentorship where you have interaction with Chris and his team of mentors and other students. You can ask questions for years to come and you never have to tackle this industry by yourself.

The interactive classes are designed for people working full-time jobs and held at night.

IA Firms waive the 2-5 year experience requirement if you complete the Auto Damage Certification that is included in the mentorship.

Vale Training Solutions

Vale holds in person and some online training courses for auto damage training. Although no official experience requirement is waived by IA Firms for Vale training it is a respected training facility that any firm will recognize. Their two-week program would be what you need to consider.



Software Training
