OBJECTIVES AND REQUIREMENTS
Under the Department of Labor's Dictionary of Occupational Titles ("DOT"), the specific vocational course of instruction offered by this School is:
Adjuster: DOT #241-217-010
Documents, measures, and negotiates insured losses.
There are no specific entrance requirements for prospective students to enroll in the course. We prefer that students meet the requirements of their state to have an adjuster's license. In Arizona, for example, those requirements include being 18 years or older, and either being a resident of the State of Arizona, or being a resident of another state which will permit Arizona residents to act as adjusters in such other state. Arizona also requires licensees to be of good moral character. Student correspondence is reviewed for reply with necessary instructions provided. Students may enroll at any time during the calendar year.
The course is designed for continuing education. Students may enroll in the entire course, in any of seven modules, or in individual lessons. A compilation of individual Course curricula can be provided upon request. Check with your State for information as to the requirements for continuing education.
The Adjuster Insurance School is a subsidiary of ICC, Inc. located in Mesa, Arizona. The school has conducted seminars in various locations which include office facilities at individual companies to whom we would address and at various conference centers. The primary function of the school is 1) to provide correspondence courses 2) receive and grade lesson tests 3) post permanent record cards and 4) to return information in the form of a response to each lesson. As such, it is not anticipated that enrollees or applicants would visit the administrative offices.
INTERRUPTIONS, MAKE-UP WORK, AND ATTENDANCE
The student has a limit of ONE (1) YEAR in which to complete the course. The pace at which students wish to proceed is left entirely up to them. It is recommended that at least one lesson be submitted every week. However, completed lessons can be submitted at any time and it is not necessary to receive a grade card from a previous lesson before completing the next lesson.
Although the School does not maintain an active National Placement Department, we sometimes can offer suggestions to assist graduates in good standing to obtain employment. No guarantees in this regard, however, are made. The School furnishes a Certificate of Completion Diploma.
POLICY ON GRADING
A student must achieve a minimum score of 70% on any and all examinations. Any grade lower than 70% is returned to the student, along with suggestions as to proper study methods and correct interpretation. Each student receives an indication of his or her progress, and each lesson is returned after grading. Progress records and any comments are kept in the student's permanent file at the School. Grades are provided to prospective employers with the student's written permission. A ten (10) question quiz at the end of each lesson, and the final examination consisting of 50 questions and 15 essay questions must be completed.
A student may cancel the contract for the course at any time up to five (5) business days following the student's reception of the first lesson. If the course is mailed to the student, three (3) days are added from the date of the postmark, making a total of eight (8) days. Any payment, or signed negotiable instrument, will be returned within ten (10) days of receiving the notice of cancellation. However, no refunds will be allowed if the cancellation notice is postmarked more than eight (8) days after the original delivery postmark.
