California Residential Earthquake Claim Handling Certificate Training
What I do is California Earthquake Claim Handling Training. The California Department of Insurance regulations require adjusters who handle EQ claims in California to have an Earthquake Claim Handling certificate showing that they have been trained on specific Regulations. Company desk adjusters who manage independent field adjusters also need to have this certificate. A certificate of completion that meets the California regulations is given at the end of my class.
Any adjuster who goes to California to handle an earthquake claim will be asked to show their California Earthquake Claim Handling certificate before a company will use them. What the adjusters learn in this class, will also help prepare them to handle an earthquake claim in any State. For example, we talk about how to handle fracking EQ claims.
There are several ways to do this. I can teach a stand alone CA EQ Certificate class which will take about 2 hours. This can be in person or via Webinar, i.e Zoom, or whatever remote platform you use.
Some companies like me to partner with an engineer in which case I usually do about 1.5 hours on the required adjuster topics and the engineer does 1.5 hours on earthquake damage assessment. This takes up a good half day. I can recommend good engineers for this class.
Some independent adjusting companies like me to present the EQ Cert class along with CEA coverage and CEA claim handling expectations. This is a 3-hour class.
I often am called upon to present at independent adjuster conferences. If you are an IA firm holding a conference for your adjusters, I can present the California earthquake certificate course so that all your adjusters leave the conference with their CA EQ Certificate. If you are an approved CE provider, I will work with you to get my class approved for CEs.
We need to talk, but the goal is to get your adjusters trained and accredited to handle EQ claims in California, and the rest of the country.
I can also present the required annual CA Fair Claims Handling update course, and the required annual SIU adjuster update class. I will coach you on what is required to meet required regulations.
