For those that can not take time to attend a live class, the Xactimate
( XM8 ) Self-Paced Training is perfect. The level 1 & level 2 classes have been split into numerous videos to allow short sessions so that any amount of free time can be used. The videos are numerically ordered to follow the live classroom agenda.
Level 3 mastery course is also available to improve your skills with advanced techniques. Specialized classes for Interiors only, roofing only, desk adjuster (estimator) & Xactimate Mobile classes also available.
The online self-paced training allows students to see how to perform functions one step at a time & follow along one step at a time. The videos were created with the same information as provided in the classroom and are timed so that students have time to follow along (although the videos can be paused, re-winded and replayed as many times as needed). 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.
The videos are in order and range from 5-45 minutes to accommodate any schedule. The videos were purposely made shorter for easy reference when a refresher is needed or searching a particular item. A one year membership to Crest LLC is included for the course you registered for and the videos will be available for that year.
The 30 day Xactimate free trial can be downloaded and used for any of our trainings.
This course does not include the 320 page workbook & shortcut mouse pad, but they can be purchased separately from Verisk.

BEST EXPERIENCE - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I had experience with Xactimate and assumed I would not need the Level 1 class. Boy, was I wrong. Even with Xactimate experience, there are so many things I did not know. I ended up taking Level 1 and Level 2 Xactimate training video classes.
The support was the most outstanding! I sent in an email with a question and got a telephone call from my trainer. He offered to hop on a zoom call with me. Who does that??? I was impressed!
I highly recommend taking both level 1 and 2 Xactimate training classes. There are many hidden tips and tricks to learn which will make your estimating faster and more accurate.
Buying into the Xactimate Training video courses availed me an entire year of access. I sailed through training to earn my certifications. I really enjoyed the self-paced Xactimate training videos which worked perfectly into my busy schedule.
I am a new adjuster and the only thing I knew about Xactimate was its name. I knew that getting the xactimate certification would help me in getting deployed, so I searched for training that would help me. I came across the Crest LLC website. The testimonies were impressive, but I wanted to be sure, before footing over my cash, that was in short supply. I called and Al picked up and blew me away. After our conversation, I was so excited about Xactimate and the training.
Long story short, I took both trainings (1& 2) on a Monday and was finished by Friday morning. Saturday, I sketched my interior and roof for the certification exam. Monday I took the exam and passed. I am level 2 certified. Yes, that is how great the training is. I could go on and on about how great he is and his training. But go ahead and find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed. His training will be one of the best investments you make for yourself and your career.
