The Xactimate Training Course is designed for new to intermediate Xactimate users.
Students in this course will be introduced to the techniques and best practices needed to create small to medium loss estimates using a variety of Xactimate tools. Students will be taught the most efficient ways to set-up, sketch, scope, and deliver professional estimates. All this is done while preparing students for Level 1 and 2 Certification Exams. The class is taught by an Xactimate Certified Trainer using Xactware’s approved method to maximize retention of the 4 step estimating process. In addition to the hands on training, each student will have access to a preclass video one week prior to class with exercises to begin improving their skills before class. After class, students will have access, for a period of time, access to additional videos reviewing portions of the class.
The Fundamentals & Proficiency Class will take you from the very beginning and most basic aspects of Xactimate through the completion of an estimate. This classroom training allows students to see how to perform functions one step at a time & follow along one step at a time. Shortcuts are shown along the way to begin developing speed. Keyword searches are emphasized so that even those without construction backgrounds will be able to find estimate items.
This course is a three day, instructor-led, classroom training. Students complete a variety of practice estimates and hands-on Xactimate exercises. The instructor incorporates the teaching methodology of demonstrate, participate, and practice. After receiving demonstration of Xactimate concepts by the instructor, students participate in discussion then practice the concepts within Xactimate. During the course progression, exercises build on previously taught concepts to provide reinforcement. A 300 page workbook is included to follow along with and for future reference. Test preparation exercises to assist in level certification success will be provided. 15 C.E. credits for Florida 620 Adjusters.
The class will run from at 9:00 am – 5 pm EST.
