Insurance Careers Month

February is Insurance Careers Month!

I know I am so thankful for what Insurance has done for me. 

But I was extremely lucky.

Back to (Claims) School

As the holiday break was winding down, and I was getting ready to send my kids back to school, it got me thinking about education.

And I’m not just speaking about those CE courses just to keep your adjuster license active.

I’m talking about the educational foundations to building a successful career.  From online courses to get your start, to hands-on training, to Claims specific designations.
