Moraine Park Technical College has a certificate offering available for people interested in becoming claims adjusters.
Terry Wollin, claims adjuster instructor, noted there is a high demand for qualified claims adjusters right now, so the job outlook is extremely bright.
"This would be an excellent career opportunity for someone interested in making a career change, especially someone with prior experience in the medical, construction, or automotive field, but who lacks the insurance background," Wollin said.
The claims certificate includes six classes taken in sequence. The classes are held Thursday mornings 7-9:30 a.m. The first class, Property/Liability Insurance Principles, runs for eight weeks starting Aug. 23. The certificate can be completed in approximately one year. To register for this class call 920-929-2100 or 1-800-221-6430 and use course number 162-103-001.
In addition to receiving the certificate, students may earn an Associates Insurance Services (AIS) designation upon passing a national exam following four of six courses.
