360training Releases Online Texas Property and Casualty Insurance Adjuster Course

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2006 -- Last year's record-setting hurricane season left many insurance companies scrambling to find licensed insurance adjusters to asses the widespread storm damage. So great was the need for insurance adjusters, many states quickly legislated emergency adjuster licensing provisions to meet the demand.

360training, a learning technologies and content company, announced today the release of its online Property and Casualty Insurance Adjuster course approved by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI).

Anyone with a property and casualty adjuster license has become a very desirable commodity in the insurance industry given the catastrophic hurricane damage that crippled the Gulf Coast states in 2005.

Obtaining a Texas property and casualty adjuster license requires successfully completing the Thomson Prometric exam or a TDI approved course.

360training's 40-hour Property and Casualty Adjuster Course was specifically developed so prospective adjusters can take the TDI-approved course online, complete the requisite final exam at the end of the course and then obtain a license from the TDI.

"We're very excited about this course. It's timely and you can take it all online. We've made it very convenient for anyone interested in obtaining a Texas adjuster license," Chuck Origer said, 360training's V.P. of Insurance and Financial Services. "It saves them both time and money compared to the alternatives out there."

Offered entirely online, the 40-hour course allows anyone to complete it at their convenience -- 24 hours a day 7 days a week -- as long as they have access to the internet.

The course is structured on a series of specific lessons mandated by the state of Texas; each lesson has four quizzes for every course hour of instruction. These quizzes and the final exam are 70% application questions and 30% memorization.

Based on the TDI outline, 360training's online course covers a wide range of topics including:

--  Standard Fire Policies
--  Auto Liability and Texas
--  Personal Lines Coverage
--  Commercial Lines
--  Inland and Ocean Marine
--  Bonds
--  Texas Licensing Requirements
--  Marketing Practices
--  Adjuster Practices, Responsibilities and Duties
    
"One of the best parts about this is that being a resident of Texas and holding a Texas adjuster's license also qualifies the licensee to practice in 32 other states due to reciprocity agreements between those states and Texas," Origer said.

The official hurricane season runs from June through November.
