WeTrainAdjusters to Offer Online Xactimate(R) Courses

Harpers Ferry, WV, Dec 19, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- What do 22 of the top 25 insurance companies in the U.S. have in common They all use Xactware(R) property insurance claims estimating software. Among Xactware's offerings, Xactimate is the one that is most familiar to property adjusters. Whether it's for CAT work or daily claims, adjusters need to know Xactimate to get deployed.

Unfortunately, for adjusters that haven't used Xactimate, getting up to speed is difficult. Traditionally, adjusters have either tried to learn the product on their own, taken classroom training or attended webinars. These solutions can be time consuming, inconvenient, or ineffective.

WeTrainAdjusters, in partnership with Martin Langley a certified Level 3 Xactimate Affiliate Trainer, is about to change that.

"We've been looking for an online training solution for Xactimate for a long time" says Scott Hutton, Training Director for MindCross Training, the company that created WeTrainAdjusters. "It's a complex, powerful application that can have a steep learning curve. Our students have been asking about an online course for several years. The partnership with Martin finally gives us the type of course we want to offer." As a professional trainer and licensed adjuster, Martin understands what adjusters need to know to use Xactimate. The course combines video training with a detailed course manual that shows adjusters' practical, easy to learn lessons using Xactimate.

The result is an effective, interactive training experience.

"This is the first true complete real eLearning course of its kind" notes Langley. "It teaches adjusters how to do a typical storm estimate including sketching and graphical estimating." Like all WeTrainAdjusters courses, the Xactimate training will be available from their website 24/7 using any computer with Internet access. Students work at their own pace, starting and stopping as often as they need to. The training will be offered starting in early 2013.
