Alfred is a top-notch instructor, very patient and very skilled in teaching Xactimate to all levels of expertise; from novice to advanced. His virtual classroom is ideal for those who cannot travel to a live class due to time constraints. Before my class, Hurricane Michael came through my area and knocked out power for days. Alfred contacted me before the class was scheduled to start, and I was able to reschedule with him the following week. I was impressed with him before we ever started class. At the beginning, I was highly intimidated by Xactimate. I knew how it worked, but I had a difficult time making it do the things I wanted it to do. If you are like me, and the thought of Xactimate gives you anxiety, take this class. It's not only an investment in your job, it's an investment in your confidence.
