Property Technical Certification

All around us, certifications bring ease to customers relying on those with technical skills to provide a professional level of service. When seeing a doctor, we trust that he or she has been through rigorous training to suggest a preventative health plan. We expect our lawyer has passed a demanding series of courses to guide us through the law.  We should expect the same level of service from adjusters as insurance professionals.

PTC-Logo -webThe Property Technical Certification (PTC) is an assessment-based technical certification program for the property claims industry that:

  • Provides online coursework and training to learners to build their property technical knowledge, skills, and competencies, standardizing the knowledge required to properly estimate property claims.
  • Evaluates learners' achievement of the program goals.
  • Awards a certificate only to those who meet performance, proficiency and passing standards.

The PTC program is a three part program. PTC I and II curriculum is now available for purchase. PTC I consists of 12 courses covering all of the foundational elements of property claims handling.
