Ohio does not license insurance adjusters. For Ohio residents wanting to become a licensed independent adjuster, a nonresident Designated Home State (DHS) License can be obtained from Texas. We have the courses you need to fulfill your licensing requirements.
Ohio Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Get Your Adjuster License for the State of Ohio Here
Ohio is one of several states that do not offer state-specific insurance adjuster licensing. To work as an insurance adjuster in Ohio, 2021 Training recommends getting your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and choosing Texas as your “Designated Home State”. A Texas state license will allow you to work in states like Ohio who don’t have their own licensing program. Not only will this open the door to more deployment opportunities, it will also ensure that you get all the Continuing Education courses you need to keep your license up to date. Texas is a popular state to get licensed in, so CE courses are plentiful here.
You can earn your Texas license online through 2021 Training! Work at your own pace without the hassle of sitting in traffic on the way to a classroom. You can read and review the materials as much as you need to in order to fully understand the concepts, and your instructor will be available to answer any questions you have. It’s a modern solution for anyone who wants to become a licensed insurance adjuster.
The more states you can work in, the more money you can earn. Texas, being a huge state with frequent severe weather events, is a common location for adjusters to work. Tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods create disaster areas that require many adjusters to come and investigate. Most states will recognize your Texas license, allowing you to work in those states as well. By working in numerous locations, you can increase your caseload, earn more money, and help more disaster victims.
2021 Training offers a fully-online licensing curriculum that makes it easy to get your Texas Insurance Adjuster License. Our nontraditional setting was designed for your convenience. You have the freedom to do your coursework anywhere, so students with jobs or families can do their classwork in their spare time.

You can take them at any time to keep your license current.
Why Get a TEXAS Insurance Adjuster License?
You’ll need a certain number of Continuing Education credits to renew your license. While you might be able to earn your license faster in some states, Texas is always on the list for approved CE courses. When you’re licensed here, you can be sure you’ll always have plenty of state-approved CE courses available. The same is not true for all states.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states if you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their own state licensing exams. This also applies to states like Ohio that don’t have their own licensing.
