Haag Education Seminars available for Adjusters and Adjusting firms- Great Roof Damage Assessment Training

April 24, 2008

 

It isn’t often I’m willing to go out on a limb to recommend a specific school’s training programs but I wanted to pass along this information as we have had many participants take Haag Engineering’s educational seminars reporting back on the excellent quality of the training. I took a one week roofing class at their home office years ago and thought very highly of the program.

The classes meet our search for reputable sources of classes that also provide CE credits. At the top of my list of favorite programs they offer for adjusters are the Roofing Certification Course  and the Roof Damage Assessment classes for adjusters.

Visit www.haageducation.com for your CE credit and other training needs. In addition to their educational programs, they will come to an adjusting firm’s facility to present much needed training such as California Earthquake certification,etc which is an outstanding option given the unrealistic price of gas approaching $4.00 per gallon this summer at a time when adjuster’s have had much less work the past two seasons. You can find a complete list of ALL of the seminars they have available and search by date, city,etc here. New this year, they also offer their class room facilities for adjusting firm for field classes at a much more reasonable price than hotel facilities often used for field meetings.

I’ve often wondered just what did happen to the experiment they were working on years and years ago when I attended a one week roofing school while a staff field reinspector at their headquarters where they were experimenting with newly manufactured shingles WITHOUT the granules on them to see what it did to the life of the shingles(comparing it to a second set from same manufacture group with the granules). Their plan had been to leave this roof section ( I think it was 10 x 10) out in the field 10 years. All experienced adjusters are well aware of granule loss claims by roofers alleging they totalled the roof. It will be interesting to hear from them as to how that ever turned out.

If you get a chance, visit with John Derosa, Haag Engineering Education Seminar Manager who is most approachable and willing to service your training needs where it is most convenient for your group. I am fortunate to have met him in person at the 2007 NACA convention. In the event you’d like to talk to him directly, here is John’s direct contact information:

I don’t want to fail to mention their publications as well for those of you unable to travel to any of their field locations. You can view those available here. This same link shows tools such as their PITCH gauge and provides information on their newest publications such as the Tile Roof Assessment guide. Having a few of these items myself in my library, I can attest to the quality of these guides and the quality of the information and training guidance for trainees and experienced adjusters alike. Their pricing is extremely reasonable on their publications so they should be within the reach of everyone’s budget. 

Here is also a link on their site where you can check the CE credits available for their classes by state:

April 18, 2008

Fox News is reporting a 5.4 earthquake in Illinois- the strongest they say to hit the area in 40 years. Later reports are now saying 5.2 centered in eastern Illinois. They say it was felt in IL, IN. MO, KY, TN and others. Below you will find some of the initial reports. They are showing photos of brick damage to buildings in Louisville, KY now. Here are some of the initial reports. We’ll update this blog entry with more news and emergency adjuster licensing information in the states involved as the day progresses. We will also update this blog with all new staffing requests received as a result of this EQ as the week progresses so check back regularly.

Supplemental Request 4/18/08 for TX licensed/Nationwide Certified Adjusters

April 18, 2008

 

We have received a supplemental request (original was 4/11/08-click here for all details on prior blog post on the opportunity) for TX licensed (resident or non resident) adjusters who do HAVE their Nationwide Insurance carrier certification exam. Please see the prior link for all necessary information for consideration. We do need the approximate date of your Nationwide passing exam as well as the name of the vendor you took the exam through as the adjusting firm we are staffing firm must verify with Nationwide that you have completed their certification. No exceptions can be made. Last week we received resumes from some outstanding experienced adjusters but they did NOT have the Nationwide certification thus we were not able to submit their information for this particular opportunity.

We do welcome all applicants for future opportunities but for this particular one- the Nationwide certification AND the experience requirements must be met for consideration. All others- please just specify in the subject area of your email that you are requesting roster placement.

Note that a 5.4 Earthquake has hit today in Illinois, we’ll have more information up on that soon as well as posting information throughout the week on any additional staffing requests so check back often.


National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters Membership Drive to 3/15/08

March 6, 2008

The National Association of Catastrophe adjusters has changed their membership drive deadline to a new deadline of March 15, 2008 for new and experienced adjusters as well as adjusting firms wishing to join (prior deadline was this past November).

I’ve written about this organization before after becoming quite impressed with them while attending the 2006 yearly convention. I was quite pleased to find such a professional organization holding a meeting that was equal in value to annual carrier claim conventions with their professionalism, opportunities to obtain CE credits for adjusters and I note this coming year (Jan 09) they will offer the National Flood NFIP certification classes as well as the California Earthquake certification.

Here is a link to their membership information! Won’t you consider joining this very worthwhile group? By getting your application in prior to the March 15, 2008 deadline, you will have the opportunity once approved for membership to be in their 2008 directory.

Again we appreciate the 2007 President, Woody Britton, for letting us know about the extension of this year’s registration deadline. We also wish a very successful year to incoming 2008 President, Angelo Cassanese.

Fox news has a breaking news story that a 6.0  EQ just hit Elko, NV. It is listed in this Fox news story as 430 miles from Las Vegas and 230 miles from Salt Lake City, UT. It also says folks as far away as southern CA felt the quake.http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,331649,00.htmlThis report in the Salt Lake City Tribune is saying the worst damage is in Wells, NV:http://www.sltrib.com/ci_8323975

Here is more news on Reuters confirming Wells, NV worst damage:

http://www.reuters.com/article/latestCrisis/idUSN21267529

Main licensing link:

http://www.doi.state.nv.us/Form-FormsIndex.htm#Producer%20Licensing%20Section

If you look at the 1/5/08 Press release at the Nv Dept of Ins website, you’ll see they have to declare a disaster to allow emergency adjusters to handle claims. They do not have one for the EQ today up as of this writing:

http://doi.state.nv.us/Press-Press2008Index.htm

Here is a link to some other state licensing info (scroll down to Insurance Adjuster) but it may be outdated since it says 2001 and some of the info on the Ins Dept website on the 1st link has pdf’s dated 06 and 07. If anyone finds the direct link to emergency adjuster licenses, please provide the direct link. This 2nd link shows that the fine is 1,000 per violation for handling claims unlicensed but I’m not finding the direct info to emergency licenses. Note, while they addressed resident and non resident adjuster licenses, there was no clear link to emergency adjuster license applications that I could find.

NOTICE

To: All Insurers, Insurance Producers, and Other Interested Parties

Date: September 7, 2007

RE: Fingerprint card processing fee increase

Effective October 1, 2007, the fee for fingerprint cards will increase from $45.00 to $51.25 because of the increased fees charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) for the processing of fingerprint cards from Nevada.

The Department of Business and Industry, Division of Insurance (Division) requires an individual to submit two complete sets of fingerprints which are ultimately forwarded to the FBI to conduct a background search.

Any cards processed by the FBI after September 28, 2007 must include the appropriate fee. Accordingly, any application or submission received by the Division after September 28, 2007 must include the new fee of $51.25. Applications or submissions that do not include the appropriate fee will be deemed incomplete and will not be processed until the correct fee is paid.

The Division cannot guarantee cards will be processed at the lower fee.

Persons with questions regarding this information may contact the licensing section of Division at (775) 687-4270 in Carson City or (702) 486-4009 in Las Vegas.

Again, I apologize that the font size tool still can’t be found to consistently size font when combining information from several sources but I wanted to get this info out to you asap.

Tomorrow is Postmark Deadline to get applications in to join NACA-National Assn of Catastrophe Adjusters

November 14, 2007

Special Thanks to President Woody Britton of NACA- National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters for providing us an update that tomorrow is the deadline to get your applications in for membership for this year. Here is a portion of his email which explains:

“If you get time, tomorrow is the deadline for NACA membership applications to be post marked, maybe drop a reminder in the pot for everyone. The class schedule for the convention is on line and the classes are filling well, so we are trying to encourage everyone to get going on registering. I know it has been slow, but these are the years that we need to stick together and meet with other adjusters and the vendors to try and get our names on their lists.”
 
We have an ongoing very popular topic over at ClaimSmentor for those blog readers who are members there.

In addition to tomorrow’s deadline to apply for 2008 membership, we strongly
encourage all adjusters, adjusting firms, carrier members, and other vendors
supporting the claim industry to participate in this year’s annual NACA
convention to be held in January 2008 in Myrtle Beach, SC. I had the pleasure to
attend the convention in 2007 in Dallas, TX and have become a strong supporter
of their program after experiencing the quality of the educational and
networking opportunities at their convention which was equivalent to attending
an annual major insurance carrier claim convention during my 28 years in claims
as staff.

Here is a link to the upcoming 2008 educational opportunities for the January 2008 convention taking place in Myrtle Beach, SC along with a few additional words from President Woody Britton:

“Enclosed is the link to the NACA educational sessions at this year’s convention. The classes this year are excellent. We also have lined up the accreditation for California Earthquake Authority.  This is the mandatory class you have to take prior to handling claims for them.

Overall, we are excited for the classes and the networking possibilities. It is a great arena to meet fellow adjusters and network your talents and skills to the vendors, face to face.

We look forward to seeing you there!!”
