Where to Find Online Coursework
The Insurance Educational Association offers a number of online classes for claims adjusting. They deal with liability claims, property loss, bodily injury and also the overall claims environment. These courses are instructor led, so they do have specified starting and ending dates. Since they are aimed at insurance industry professionals, 27 CEUs may be earned by fire and casualty broker agents upon passing the national exam administered by the Insurance Institute of America. This is also the entity which sells the study materials. The cost for a course starts at $249.
Florida residents may want to take a look at the Online Training Institute, which offers a distance learning claims adjuster course that is geared toward professionals who are looking to take the independent adjuster or the company adjuster licensing exam. Successful completion of the course and examination makes the Florida state exam obsolete. Best of all, Florida adjusters may later on apply for non resident licenses in other states that offer a reciprocal licensing standard. Please note that the final exam of this course must be taken in person at a Florida community college.
The Insurance Schools website is geared to the professional looking to either take the state licensing exams for their locality or ahead of time take an online course that will prepare her/him for passing the test. Costs vary; for example, to take the California adjuster practice exam, be prepared to pay $60. If you want to take a basic class to prepare you for the experience, you will need to pay an additional $160. The classes may offer CEUs in Florida, Wyoming, Mississippi, Utah, Montana, Texas, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and North Carolina.
