Career Certificate (Clock Hour program)
The mission of the Insurance Claims Adjuster (6-20) program is to assist students in their quest for an adjuster license by providing qualifying pre-licensing education to potential adjusters. This program is based on state-mandated curriculum and hours and will earn the student an Accredited Claims Adjuster (ACA) designation and exemption from the state examination. By offering the program coursework online it optimizes educational opportunities for both local and state-wide students
Investigating insurance claims, reviewing policy information, and writing detailed reports are some of the responsibilities you may have as a claims adjuster. This state-approved program can be completed in 40 hours and is for licensure as an adjuster in the insurance field (Accredited Claims Adjuster designation). Successful completion of the course and final exam exempts students from the state exam.
A minimum grade of C or better must be achieved in all professional coursework.
Successfully completing the program and passing the final exam enables students to obtain their license without taking the state exam.
In order to obtain licensing as an insurance agent or adjuster in the state of Florida, a student will be expected to verify United States citizenship status or be a legal alien with work authorization from the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services and provide a valid Social Security number. To ensure employability in the widest possible manner, all students should be prepared to provide this documentation prior to enrolling in the program.
Please note that the state of Florida requires fingerprinting and a background check, which may prevent you from obtaining licensure. Information for applicants with a criminal history is available at myfloridacfo.com/division/agents/licensure/general/priorcrimhist.htm.
