For those that can not take time to attend a live class,
the 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 and roofing only also available. Desk Adjuster classes coming soon.
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.
This course does not include the 340 page workbook & shortcut mouse pad, but they can be purchased separately in the links & products page (Virtual & hard copies are available).

Self-Paced Training Example Video - Video #7
I took the Xactimate X1 self-paced training. The training was thorough and easy to understand. The length and information given in the videos were easy to follow and to navigate through while learning each technical skill. Alfred provides great explanations and examples in each video for the subject matter. The videos are not to short or long. They are perfect, in that, you will be able to remember what you learned. Retention is so important as well as muscle memory with Xactimate. Initially, I was intimidated to sketch the different roofs and change the shape of the room, but after following Alfred’s instructions, I was able to sketch a room and roof with no issues. In addition, what’s awesome about Alfred is that he is available to his students and he will assist you with any questions you may have. He is dedicated to the success of his students. I would definitely recommend Alfred (Crest, LLC) to any person who wants to learn Xactimate or just need a refresher. Alfred is a phenomenal instructor!
"I went through all the Fundamentals and 6 lessons in Proficiency. I am planning to go through the rest of the videos tomorrow.
They are excellent. Easy to follow and clips are timed well. Very well made videos.Once again thanks for sharing these with me. It helped me refresh well."
