KMC On Demand(SM) Selected By Veteran Adjusting School To Provide Technology And Curriculum

ATLANTA, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  KMC On Demand, a subsidiary of Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB), and leading provider of learning technologies for the insurance claims industry, has been selected by Veteran Adjusting School (VAS) to support the training of veterans of the Armed Forces on becoming catastrophe (CAT) adjusters. 

Veteran Adjusting School is a newly established catastrophe adjuster vocational school dedicated to providing the most comprehensive training available to veterans of the various branches of our nation's military. The mission is to help America's returning heroes gain long term employment in the insurance adjusting field.  VAS was founded by current and former Independent CAT adjusters.   

"We take special pride in working with a program for veterans to enter the claims management industry.  CAT adjusters are first on the scene of a claim and participate directly in assisting the insured in recovering from a property loss.  Veterans are a perfect fit for this role.  Also, the current rate of unemployment among post September 11, 2001 veterans is over 10%, making this a priority to get these folks employed in a stable profession," said Douglas Dell, senior vice president for KMC On Demand.

"As we required a specialized technical platform and curriculum solution, we selected KMC on Demand as the learning management system to provide a comprehensive registrar function and provide access to more than 200 hours of continuing education training in adjusting topics that range from auto, property and casualty claims to workers compensation and fraud.

Additionally, our need for a specialized technical curriculum for property adjusters was met by the Property Technical Certification (PTC). PTC is an industry-specific certification program for property adjusters developed by KMC in conjunction with an industry advisory panel of more than 20 insurance carriers, technical schools, restoration companies and claims adjusting organizations," said Guy Grand director- Veteran Adjusting School.   

PTC acting as part of the core curriculum will provide comprehensive instruction on the technical aspects of property claims investigation, documentation, material assessment and repair.  KMC technology combined with PTC curriculum will work in concert with on the ground claims investigation and specialized Xactimate software training to establish the comprehensive 6 month curriculum.  The school is actively working with independent adjusting firms to supplement their current adjuster rosters with these new graduates.  In addition to the training services, Crawford Catastrophe Services will look to utilize VAS graduates as catastrophe adjusters and is presently working with the school to establish a scholarship program.
