Colorado Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Colorado does not offer a state-specific insurance adjuster license. If you want to be able to practice in the state of Colorado, we recommend you become licensed in Texas and claim Texas as your home state. Through reciprocity, this will allow you to work in Colorado.
Applicable Training Courses
The Texas All-Lines Pre-Licensing Course will prepare you to become licensed in Texas and all the states that offer reciprocity. Click here to learn more and register for this course.
Q. What Should I Do To Become a Colorado Insurance Adjuster?
A. Get a Texas All-Lines Insurance Adjusters License with Texas as your “Designated Home State”. Since there is no such thing as a Colorado Insurance Adjuster License, you should get a license in a state such as Texas that allows you to get a “Designated Home State” license if you are from a state that offers no licensing.
Q. Why do I need a designated home state?
A. It is extremely difficult to get work if you do not carry a license, even though Colorado doesn’t offer state-specific licensing. As an insurance adjuster, you’ll want to be able to work in states other than your home state. Texas is a large state with heavy storm activity, so it’s a common place for adjusters to work.
Texas requires adjusters to be licensed. By designating Texas as your home state, your Texas license will allow you to work in other states with reciprocity.
Q. Why do you recommend a TEXAS Adjuster License?
A. It’s not just about getting a license, but being able to renew it as required. It’s easy to get CE credits for Texas. Most conferences you attend as an adjuster will always have their CE credits approved for Texas. Some companies recommend other states, such as Indiana. While you can get licensed quickly there, not many places will give you CE credits, which makes it harder to renew your license. You’ll always find Texas on the list where CE courses are offered.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states as long as you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their licensing exam.
