Texas Adjuster Pre-Licensing
TDI Course # 88758
A four (4) day course that broadly teaches insurance policies, insurance regulation and law.

Amcat suggests taking a classroom version of this rather than online due to the benefit of instructor interaction with attending students. This course satisfies all Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) requirements.
No additional courses or tests are necessary to get your license if you complete this course.
NON-TEXAS STUDENTS - Your state of residence may have special requirements. Please call the Amcat Education Department 800-995-1433 ext. 232 for assistance.

Texas Windstorm Insurance Association Certification (TWIA)
When Hurricane Celia struck the Texas coast on August 3, 1970, many insurance companies ceased to write business in this region. To protect consumers, in 1971 the state stepped in and created the Texas Catastrophe Property Insurance Association (now called the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association).
Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) is a “pool” of all property and casualty (P&C) insurance companies authorized to write coverage in Texas. TWIA provides basic wind and hail insurance coverage for Gulf Coast property owners who might otherwise be left uninsured.
In order to work losses for TWIA, an adjuster must have a Texas license and working through an approved adjusting firm, as well as attend a yearly TWIA certification class. This training will also provide four (4) Continuing Education credits, through TWIA, toward renewal of your Texas Adjuster’s license.

Amcat Adjuster Evaluation
This one (1) day evaluation is designed for the adjuster interested in the possibility of becoming an independent adjuster with Amcat.
