The classroom training and hands-on experience offered by Vale gives new adjusters the confidence they need to get out into the field. As Romero explains: “After Vale they’re 100% ready. They’ve passed their certification, they understand what’s expected of them and the confidence level is definitely high. They are ready to write up a fire loss or a vehicle loss because they have the tools and resources wrapped around them, and they’re ready for the action part.”
Continual professional development is another string to Vale’s bow, he adds. “Many of our staff take advantage of the opportunity to go back and get other additional resources, such as the flood training or earthquake training, and complete some of the more advanced courses once they get the fundamentals under their belt.
My group has built very strong relationships with the teachers at Vale and that also helps them to further their careers.”
