Live Xactimate Level Certification Training vs. Online Xactimate Mastery Course

Which training is most effective for storm restoration roofing contractors?

Storm restoration roofing contractors understand that knowledge is power, and the more skilled they are at the necessary strategies for maximizing their insurance claim deals using Xactimate, the higher their job profits will be and their homeowners can receive better quality work for being indemnified properly for their property loss claims.

Until recently, the only real options that existed for storm restoration roofing contractors to learn Xactimate software was to either attend a live Xactimate training put on by Xactware somewhere else in the country such as Dallas, Texas or Salt Lake, Utah, OR pursue their Level 1, 2, & 3 Xactimate Certifications.

Unfortunately, these 2 options presented 2 fundamental problems:

  • Live Xactimate training BY Xactware is made for INSURANCE ADJUSTERS, not roofers
  • Live trainings mean poor retention of information based on chicken scratch notes & memory only

The ironic thing that should be obvious to roofing contractors who do insurance claims is that they want to learn Xactimate estimates because they don't like the way that adjusters write their Xactimate estimates.

Contractors want to learn Xactimate so they can SUPPLEMENT their insurance claims. Adjusters don't want to supplement their claims.

So why on earth would we attend a class that teaches ADJUSTERS how to write Xactimate estimates?

It doesn't make sense, and most roofing contractors leave those classes feeling like the majority of the class was a waste of time, taught them things they didn't need to know (because they're roofers, not insurance adjusters).

The second issue is that attending a live training where information is dumped on you at a rapid pace JAM packed into just 2 days means you're inundated with information, you fall behind the second you miss something or go to the restroom, and you have to rely on your memory and chicken scratch notes to retain it all when the show's over and you go back to the office.

It has been proven that humans generally retain LESS THAN 30% of what they learn in a live setting after just 1 day, and they forget 75% of what they learned after 6 days.

This doesn't bode well for the cause.

On top of that, you now have to rely on the attendee of the live training being the container and the delivery method to train the REST of the team when he or she returns to the office.

Add this lack of functionality on top of having to take multiple days away from the business to travel elsewhere to take the training AND tack on hotel and travel expenses – It just doesn't add up.

This is why we created XM8 Mastery Online.
