Xactimate Level 1 – May 2018 (San Diego)
May 16th, 2018 - May 18th, 2018
We are changing the game when it comes to Xactimate Certification Training. Actionable Insights has decided to teach only one level at a time. This Level 1 course is an immersive experience that walks you through an actual CAT 3 residential water loss claim. If your new to estimating you will struggle to keep up. This class covers some advanced concepts to include open/pending line items, vapor barrier, slab repair, reasonable uniform appearance etc. Ideally, students should have some sort of foundation established.
During the day, we will explore the Xactimate training curriculum which is designed to ensure users can pass the level 1 exam and subsequently leave with the mission-critical skills required to generate a sophisticated estimate.
At night, we enter into the gamification aspect of the course. Students will compete against one another in an effort to deliver the most accurate mitigation/repair estimates. These exercises are powered by our proprietary 3D Training Modules – this technology delivers a rich and engaging learning environment.
Several quizzes will be administered within class. Students will also complete individual Mitigation Exams and Repair Exams. This data will all be organized and used to generate a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the student’s performance. These results can be used to identify skill gaps and acute outperformance in various areas.
In our opinion, too much credence and attention is given to the sketch aspect as it relates to Xactimate training. We believe that and there should be an increased focus on determining what line items most accurately/optimally represent cost and scope, and subsequently organizing them in a thoughtful way. That is the key to generating estimates that can be approved without hesitation.
Xactimate Fundamentals/Proficiency Workbook and a Xactimate Keyboard Shortcuts Mouse Pad (Boom! You had me at the Mouse Pad!).
Lunch is provided on all three days. (only the good stuff…)
The students that generate the most accurate estimate(s) will earn swag and/or mitigation equipment provided by our generous sponsors.
