How The Course Works
This course is a webinar, which means you attend the course live while in front of a computer.
Our Instructors use a program called GoToTraining that allows you to hear them and view their screen as they perform tasks in Xactimate.
You then perform that same task in your own installation of Xactimate. You can ask questions live as you do it (either through your computer's microphone or by dialing in by phone).
After you master each task, the instructor proceeds to the next. In this way we lead you step-by-step through the entire process of writing an estimate. GoToTraining was designed specifically for this kind of remote learning so it works exceptionally well.What kind of computer setup will I need? Do I need two screens?
All you will need is one normal computer - desktop or laptop - with Xactimate installed on it. You do not need two screens, although having two screens can be an added convenience. 96% of our students use a single screen and report zero problems..Can I ask questions and interact with the Instructor?
Absolutely, yes! You'll find our instructors eminently knowledgeable and approachable and they'll make certain that all of your questions are answered during the course.Are there other materials given during the course?
Yes. When you go through our Xactimate Training, you will also get our Xactimate Exercise Manual with hours of practice roofs, elevations and rooms of increasing complexity. Our Instructors will be available to assist if you have questions about these ongoing practice exercises.Will I get a certificate?
Yes. Our course is a certificate course, and qualifies for CE in key states, too. It is important to note, however, that "Xactimate Certification" is a separate process, given exclusively by Xactimate. Our class thoroughly prepares you to pass your Xactimate Level 1 Certification.
