I would like to be an insurance adjuster, not a salesman, I am 36 yrs. old not sure where to start.?

I need to take some direction in my life, have done nothing up till now but just get by. (exist) I don't have much, just your basic education, a used car, and an apt. I can't afford. Where do I start? Anyone need a protege?
