The person in charge of the business must pass the Adjuster Licensing examination administered by the Department.

You must be 18 years or older and have a California business address.

You will need to be fingerprinted and pass a criminal background check. (Fingerprints may be taken at the California examination sites.)

You must be bonded and have two years of certified experience in the insurance adjusting field. 4,000 hours of compensated time in the adjusting field is equal to two years of experience.

Who Needs To Be Licensed As An Insurance Adjuster?

An insurance adjuster is a person, other than a private investigator who, for any kind of consideration, investigates claims on behalf of an insurer or engages in soliciting insurance adjustment business.

Insurance Adjuster licenses are issued for two year terms. The two year term begins the date the license is issued and ends the last day of that same calendar month two years later. Prior to license renewal, all licensed adjusters will need to complete the continuing education requirement which is 24 hours of CE, including 3 hours of ethics, during each two year license term.

CPMI will help you to be able to pass your licensing exam and get ready to go to work!
