Texas Property and Casualty Adjuster Course
Did you know that you already have some of the skills it takes to become a Property Claims Adjuster? Both the home inspector and the adjuster look at everything that is visible and accessible, such as the roof, structure, foundation, and the site itself including retaining walls, gates and fences. Like you, the adjuster will test systems in the home, such as heating, plumbing, air conditioning, appliances, furnace, water heater, etc. And both of you use the same type of tools such as ladders, flashlights, and tape measures. Learn what skills you will need and add property adjusting to your list of services!
This course covers principles of insurance, interpreting the insurance contract, claims investigating and evaluating for homeowners coverage, personal and business auto coverage, commercial property, commercial general liability, business owner policies, aviation, inland and ocean marine, bonds, and flood; all in compliance with the new license format. Students will also learn where to network and who to contact to market your Property Claims Adjuster services. Students are certified for state licensing upon successful completion of the final exam.
How to Obtain Your Adjuster License
Applicants can comply with the licensing requirements in one of two ways:
- By passing the Texas State-required exam* or
- Being certified by successfully completing a Kaplan Financial approved course (which includes passing the state-administered exam at the end of class).
A student will be certified by the state upon attending licensing classroom time, which includes 90% attendance of classroom required hours, and scoring at least 70% on the final exam.
* Ask your Career Counselor about reciprocity in other states.
“Due to the current real estate market we began to aggressively marketing the claims adjusting side of our business. In two months we have inspected over 100 properties and are currently training new inspectors to meet the demand. This type of diversification has enabled us to thrive in a market in which we would have otherwise closed our doors.” John Cargile, Elk Grove, CA
