How is the best way to become an auto-damage appraiser for an insurance company?

How would I go about becoming an auto damage appraiser considering that no college is required? SHOULD I take some college classes or what exactly should I do?

College is only not required when you have years of body shop experience - usually many years as a body shop manager.Unless you have job experience - such as years as a body shop manager- a college degree will be required.Back in the day, you could get a job as an insurance adjuster w/o a college degree. That is no longer the case. Every company I know of requires a 4 year degree. The exception is the material damage appraisers who have years of body shop experience.Source(s):Insurance Adjuster 12 years
