How Long Does It Take To Become A Successful Texas Insurance Adjuster?

Adjusting insurance claims can be a highly rewarding career. As a claims adjuster, you will be the person going to help people after tragedy strikes and setting them up with the resources they desperately need to start over. 

There are several paths you can take to obtain your Texas adjuster’s license and get started in the insurance industry, and 2021 Training’s student support center will be there to help you find the way that works best for you. 

Due to our excellent expert knowledge-sharing policy, we frequently help direct our insurance adjuster students secure high-paying jobs within 6-9 months of obtaining either their Texas All-Lines license or P&C license. 

However, since Texas is regularly hit by storms, you’ll probably find independent adjusting jobs even sooner.

Get Your Texas Adjuster License

As a Texas resident or as a resident of one of the 16 states that don’t license adjusters (click here to see the states that don’t offer an adjuster license), the first thing you must do to adjust claims in Texas and launch yourself into a promising career is obtain your Texas Adjuster license. Click here for information about our online insurance adjuster courses and to watch a video answering the questions we frequently get from prospective students. 

2021 Training courses are 100% online, self-paced, include a study guide, and conclude with a TDI-approved state exam which you may take as many times as necessary at no additional cost. Once you complete this course, you can apply for your Texas Adjuster license.

Xactimate Training For New Insurance Adjusters

Technically all you need to start adjusting is the Texas All-Lines license or the Texas P&C Adjuster license, but most of our students also choose to sign up for our Xactimate software training program. 

You’ll waste a lot of time and miss out on bigger paydays by heading out to the field with adjusting software that you don’t know how to use. Our Xactimate training helps adjusters understand the tools they’ll be using, hit the ground running, and close claims faster. 

We recommend that new insurance adjusters take our Xactimate Training class right after they complete the 2021 Training pre-licensing course. 90% of insurance companies use Xactimate to process claims so you must have a working knowledge of the software. Click here to get started with your Xactimate training today. 

Insurance Adjusting Course Bundle

Since most of our students choose to utilize both our insurance licensing course and the Xactimate software training, we’ve decided to sweeten the deal by bundling these courses in our Smart Start Package. This bundle also includes a $99 Practical Adjusting course for FREE

This course will teach you everything else you need to know before adjusting your first claim. 

But that’s not all! You will also receive up to 17 hours worth of Continuing Education (CE) credits towards your first renewal. Click here to learn more and purchase this bundle. 

Staff vs. Independent Adjusting Jobs

After you have completed 2021 Training’s online insurance adjusting course, it’s time to find work. 

You have several options when it comes to finding great insurance adjusting jobs. All you have to do is decide whether you want to go through an insurance carrier or an independent adjusting firm.

If you want to work claims as an independent adjuster, we recommend that you get on the rosters of the top four IA (Independent Adjusting) firms — Pilot, Eberls, Renfroe and Alacrity Solutions — once you get your adjuster’s license. These companies offer ongoing training and certifications that all independent insurance adjusters should take advantage of. 

Independent Adjusting firms also offer numerous opportunities for networking which is fantastic, because in this industry the more people you know, the further you’ll go. Click here to learn more about the top independent adjusting firms in the nation and apply to be added to their rosters. 

If you’d rather work claims as a staff adjuster at an insurance carrier, we recommend that you check out our list of local and national staff adjuster firms. These local and national adjusting companies are known for hiring new adjusters at competitive rates. 

Insurance Adjuster Networking – NACA Conference

2021 Training recommends that all insurance adjusters attend the NACA (National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters) conference that is held each January. This is one of the top networking events held in the insurance industry and a great way for new insurance adjusters to find work.

In previous years, there have been over 35 different Independent Adjusting (IA) firms conducting interviews at the conference. Even if you don’t need help finding work, this is a massive networking opportunity, allowing you to connect with key decision-makers at top adjusting firms, veteran adjusters, and other adjusters who are new to the industry. 

If you’re ready to jumpstart your insurance adjusting career, you won’t want to miss the NACA conference. This is your chance to meet with the top four IA firms in the United States face to face. Click here to learn more. 

Pro Tip: Start saving up now! Most insurance adjusters spend a minimum of $1,500 for the conference, airfare, hotel, and other necessities.
