Continued Education For Insurance Adjusters
As an independent claims adjuster, your professionalism is what makes you stand out, but is also what sustains your career. That’s why continuing your professional education is essential.
Insurance adjusters from all fields are required to complete courses in continued education (CE) to receive and maintain a license. Make sure you are up to date with requirements!
Taking control of your continued education is easier than it’s ever been. With options to meet your requirements online or in the classroom, you can find exactly what you need to ensure the future of your career.
Why do insurance adjusters need continued education?
As Insurance adjusters, we carry the responsibility of providing our clients with quality service. To do that, we must be knowledgable about new products and technology, and abide by the laws and regulations put in place by our state of residence. Each state has its own requirements for an insurance claims adjuster to receive and maintain a license. This means that not only do you need to continue your professional education for the betterment of your clients and your career, you need it to stay in business! If you are in the adjuster world, continued education will be a constant throughout your career. But don’t worry, this is a good thing! Progress isn’t made without effort, and in our ever-changing industry, we are our best when we are knowledgable about our field.
Check your state laws & regulations!
Because requirements can vary from state to state, it is important to check with the insurance department in your state to make sure you are fulfilling what is necessary. Most states have a two-year system that calls for a specific number of hours in CE (continued education) courses, and some states require that those hours be spent in the classroom as opposed to online. However, many states now allow you to complete your CE courses entirely online! Check with your state Department of Insurance to find the requirements enforced by your state (for example, here are the requirements for the state of Missouri).
