Pennsylvania does not license insurance adjusters. For Pennsylvania 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.
Pennsylvania Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Get Your Adjuster License for the State of Pennsylvania Here
Pennsylvania gets its share of hurricanes and winter storms due to its location in the northeastern United States and proximity to the East Coast. With all the annual inclement weather, it’s a little unusual that Pennsylvania does not offer claims adjusters a way to become licensed by their state. If you want to work as an insurance adjuster in Pennsylvania, 2021 Training recommends getting your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and choosing Texas as your “Designated Home State”.
An All-Lines Adjuster License allows you to become licensed in one state and have that act as your license to practice in states that don’t offer state-specific credentials, like Pennsylvania. The advantages of choosing Texas as your designated home state are two-fold: first, because it’s a large state with volatile weather, it’s a popular choice for adjusters to become licensed in. Second, because it’s so popular, there are always plenty of required continuing education courses available to Texas claims adjusters. These CE courses are necessary to keep your license current.
Are you prepared to begin your career as a licensed insurance adjuster? 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.
2021 Training 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 during downtime. Our curriculum is 100% online and available from your computer 24 hours a day. We also provide state-approved CE classes that meet all your Continuing Education requirements. 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 Pennsylvania that don’t have their own licensing.

The Weather in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is far enough north to be hit by blizzards and winter storms each year, and close enough to the coast that hurricanes and tropical storms are also threats. As an adjuster, you can expect to be called on during and after heavy snowstorms that knock out power, collapse roofs, and cause countless car crashes. You will also work areas that have been struck by devastating winds and blowing debris in the wake of hurricanes. Flooding is also a possibility in low-lying areas.
