First you have to be able to write estimates using Pathways or Mitchell. It is NOT required to have bachelors degree as the person above me said. you can apply National Appraisers Institute and get your certificate in 2 weeks from Fresno or you need to have a lot of experience in order to work for the insurance company...

A friend of mine owns 3 insurance offices with a major company(hint..two hands)he once told me that he contracts body shops for a preset price for the work they perform,if you decide to go that route and they are your exclusive client,you may be locked into what you can make onjobs they give you. Good luck.
