The pace of the class is perfect! Between work, class and life the pace of the course does not make me feel overwhelmed. I am able to digest the information and learn the material using the wonderful examples the course offers. This course really breaks things down in a way that makes it easy to understand the process writing an estimate while learning the parts of a vehicle. Being able to interact with Chris and others during the weekly live class allows everyone the ability to review the information and ask questions “live time”. Another benefit of the live class is being able to hear questions other people have that I may not have thought of asking. Chris has done an amazing job putting this course together and has shared an enormous amount of information and "how to" procedures he has learned by being an IA. I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking about becoming an IA!!!

I just completed the crash course 2 provided by instructor Chris Stanley. I have spent years in the auto industry between body, mechanical and paint work on vehicles and invested in this course to become an appraiser. Depending on what level of prior experience you have will most likely determine how much you get out of this course. With a good handful of prior knowledge, I can say that this course was worth the investment for getting the know how on the smaller details that really affect how you perform as a field adjuster. Chris clearly has a lot of passion in his training courses and continuously strives to improve the criteria to better. Whether you're brand new in the auto industry or a veteran of sorts, you'll get good information on this course to help prepare you in your career as an IA. Thanks again for your training Chris. -Reagan
