The Texas adjuster license is ‘reciprocal’ in 32 states, making it the most versatile license for property claims adjusters.

The Texas adjuster license is commonly required by TPAs (third party administrator companies) as a prerequisite for employment.

It is important to note that ‘reciprocal’ does not mean that a home state license is not required. If you reside in a licensing state, you will need to first acquire your home state’s license; then get the Texas license.

Individuals with a Texas All-Lines Adjuster License may apply for a license in any of the reciprocal states. This is done by providing the appropriate paperwork, meeting the physical requirements (such as minimum age) and paying the required fees.

The benefit of reciprocity is that you do not have to complete a separate training course for each state.

IMPORTANT:  If you are NOT a Texas resident, and live in a licensing state, you must first obtain your resident license.

Licensing States vs. Non-Licensing States

Those living in non-licensing states (states that do not have licensing requirements for adjusters) may begin with a Texas non-resident license and then immediately benefit from reciprocity.

Q: “Do I Get My TX All-Lines License Immediately After Passing the Exam?”

A: No. You must then submit an application to the Texas Department of Insurance, pay the appropriate fees and satisfy the required background check. We will discuss these additional steps in class.

Questions? Call 972-837-8621.Choose 3-Day TX Licensing, 5-Day , or 7-Day options.

Q: “Will You Help Me Find Employment?”

A: We will provide a current list of adjuster firms that you will want to contact. It is your responsibility to follow up and get on their deployment rosters.

Q: “Is This A Career Option For Both Men And Women?”

A: Absolutely. Both women and men will find many opportunities as an insurance adjuster. The TX All-Lines License prepares you for entry into the insurance claims industry, where you may choose from many specialties: auto adjuster, residential property, commercial property, workmens comp, aviation, inland marine, etc.

Q: “What Skills & Abilities Do I Need To Be an Adjuster?”

A: Individuals with a background in construction, cleaning/restoration, property inspection services, and real estate are especially well-suited.

However, even without a construction or real estate background, don’t be discouraged. The necessary skills can be learned.

We promise to deliver practical, actionable training that prepares you for claims adjuster opportunities. If you do not have a construction or real estate background, we recommend the full ‘Pro Adjuster training’, which includes both ‘adjuster fundamentals’ and Xactimate® software training.

Q: “How Much Money Can I Earn As A Claims Adjuster?”

A: This is the question that we get most often. And quite honestly, it really depends on many factors. As an independent adjuster, you are paid on a fee bill schedule, per claim, by the TPA company. What this means is that time is money, especially in this business. More production=more income. You are not limited by a pre-determined salary.(Back to Top)

  1. john says:

    please explain more about the xactimate training…if I am new do I have to have this or can I just get the license class?

    • joel yeatts says:

      Hi John,

      Xactimate software training is certainly optional; we do recommend it, though, especially for newbie adjusters. A majority of employers are going to require it on your resume.
      We have 2-day class options in the Dallas-Ft Worth area or you might want to take our webinar classes.

      Hope that helps.

  2. keith says:

    I live in Oklahoma. was wondering if I have to take license classes here first? can I start with the Tx all-lines?

    • Joel Yeatts says:

      Keith, you need to get the OK license first and then get the Texas adjuster license. This was not always the case in the past, but OK is now requiring that you license there first. After that, you can take the TX license training and have reciprocity in 32 states. thanks for your question. Call us if you need more info.

  3. sarah says:

    do you help students to get job placement?

    • Joel says:

      No we don’t provide employment placement services.
      We will provide names/website addresses of third-party administrator companies where you should immediately submit your resume, once you get your license in hand.

  4. mark says:

    do you help us build a resume to get us started

    • Cathy says:

      We don’t have a class module that covers creating your resume; however we will provide a list of third-party administrator companies to contact immediately after you have your license in hand. (these companies are hand picked…they are ones known to accept new adjusters for work assignments)

Customer’s Feedback

  • " “I have been roofing for the past 6 years, and was ready to make a change by becoming a licensed adjuster.

    I found Texas Adjuster Training, taught by Mr. Joel Yeatts, online. After careful review I decided to take his full week program. I cannot speak highly enough of Joel Yeatts as an instructor, he’s very personable and truly wants to see you succeed.

    I took his course in February 2014, and every time I have a question or I’m stuck on something, I know I can call Joel and he always replies to see me through…”


    S. Weikel
    "Just wanted to thank you for the three day class this past weekend; it was the most helpful one out of the three that I have taken. I will be participating in some of your web seminars to stay fresh on this program.

    Thanks again,

    Paul Young


    "Joel is extremely knowledgable with Xactimate. His training not only allowed me to jump right into making money but, when I needed a refresher course, he took great care of me.

    When you take Joel's class, you not only gain a teacher, but a friend willing to help you to succeed with the knowledge you receive from him. The ability to ask questions at any point made for a unique online training experience."

    Josh Osteen


    "Whether you are technologically challenged, struggling to find the computer on-switch or a seasoned CAD user, Joel will have you effectively using Xactimate software by the end of the course.

    Not only does Joel know this software inside out, he shares that knowledge and experience generously. He is incredibly patient and won't leave you hanging if you need additional help. He has graciously responded to every one of my questions and phone calls.

    I've taken many online courses and webinars and Joel's Xactimate training is by far one of the most effective. I highly recommend InsuranceAdjusterTraining.net's Xactimate training to anyone that needs to use this software proficiently."

    Victoria Freese


    "Finding Joel’s webinar was an answer to prayer. I had two weeks to prepare for an exam, and with Joel’s help I passed the exam and received my certification.

    Two months later I was deployed to my first event, a hurricane on the east coast. Thanks to Joel it was a successful deployment and the start of a new career. Thank you!"

    Mark Caudill


    “The Xactimate training was very thorough and comprehensive. Joel went over every aspect of the software that I would need and answered every question.

    He shared the depths of his experience, providing valuable insights not only into how Xactimate works but best practices for speed and efficiency. I would highly recommend this training for beginners and even those seeking a refresher!”

    David Bryan



    Joel,

    I just wanted to thank you for all of your patience and the wealth of knowledge you were able to teach and show me these past few days.

    I can't tell you how excited I am about the software now where beforehand, I dreaded opening it. Your class should be a must for anyone not familiar with Xactimate.
