Frequently asked questions
  • Does Vale offer financing?

    We do not have a “financing” program. However, you are able to make separate payments. We ask for 25% of tuition at registration and the rest is due when the course starts. Several students have signed up for a course 3 months or so in advance and use that time to pay for the course in full.

  • Does Vale offer job placement?

    Vale does not have a job placement program in place.  This is mostly due to the large percentage of students already hired with the company that sends them to Vale for training.  

    If you are an Independent Adjuster, you are invited by Sedgwick to take part in their OnDemand program. Click here for details.

  • What time does class start?

    Please arrive at Vale on your class start date between 8:00am and 8:25am.  

    You will check in at the front desk and meet in our breakroom with plenty of coffee/tea/water as you await introduction to your Instructor.  

    Class starts promptly 8:30am.

  • What are Vale Training travel recommendations?

    Flights:When making flight preparations you can fly into DFW International Airport.  Vale recommends arriving the day before your course starts.

    Car Rental:To travel around town you may rent a car. Some students save on a rental by taking advantage of Vale’s preferred hotels’ shuttle services and/or using Uber or Lyft apps over the weekend.  When you arrive, it is recommended to call your hotel and request a shuttle for pick up.

     

    Hotel:Your course registration may contain a hotel reservation. If you did not make hotel arrangements with your Vale registration, you may do so at a later date. Vale’s preferred hotel price can only be taken advantage of with your registration. Please note, you can expect a reservation email from the hotel directly, no later than Friday prior to course start date. Your reservation will not be posted with them until that date. Fret not! If your reservation is made through your course registration, you will have room!
