You'll learn the core of being an auto damage appraiser plus the tips of a veteran who wants to make it easier for you to be or become independent appraiser (IA)

This course is an interactive 4-week online course. The videos, homework, and workshop sessions are released to you on a weekly basis building your knowledge and practical application brick by brick.

By the end you'll have the confidence to document any damaged vehicle you encounter regardless of the estimating software you are required to use.

You'll also understand the process you'll be expected to perform in real work scenarios. It's the best of both worlds, knowledge and application.


Practical Application

The Format

This course is an online interactive course that combines weekly self-paced learning & homework assignments with live online sessions for Q&A, application, and review.

With the live weekly group workshops, you'll get real-time feedback while you apply your newfound knowledge and expertise.

With the ability to ask questions live during the workshops you'll never have to guess if you understand what you are learning.

Weekly assignments and homework give you the hands-on tasks to build your confidence and prove you have what it takes to be included in the next generation of auto damage appraisers.
