Mission/Purpose

The mission of the Property Adjuster Estimating program is to assist students in their quest for an Emergency Adjusters license requirements and claims adjusters, examiners, and investigators employment by providing essential skills education to potential claims adjusters, estimators and investigators. This program is based on state required skills for emergency adjuster licenses.

The successful student will be prepared for Xactimate Certification, levels one and two, which are advantageous when competing for state jobs in property adjusting.

Certification/Licensing

This state-approved program prepares the student to fulfill the required state estimating skills for the Emergency Adjust License and significantly increases the employability of those with the Resident All Lines Adjuster License.

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.

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.
