Tennessee does not license insurance adjusters. For Tennessee 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.
Tennessee Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Get Your Adjuster License for the State of Tennessee Here
Some states, like Tennessee, do not offer state-specific adjuster licensing. In cases like this, you are free to become licensed in any state. 2021 Training recommends getting your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and choosing Texas as your “Designated Home State”. This will open the door for you to work in most states and give you a competitive edge when jobs become available. Insurance companies prefer adjusters who are licensed, so it’s very important to complete a quality training program and get your insurance adjuster license. Doing so in a state like Texas will ensure you get all the Continuing Education courses you need to keep your license current in the future.
At 2021 Training, we help you earn your Texas license so you can work as an adjuster in many states, including Tennessee. Our program is 100% online so you can work at your own pace and review as much as you need to.
As an insurance adjuster, the more states you can work in, the better. Texas, being such a large state with so much storm activity, is a common location for many adjusters to work. Most states will recognize your Texas license and permit you to work in their locations as well. By working in numerous states, you can increase your number of cases and earn a higher income.
2021 Training offers online classes which make getting your Texas Insurance Adjuster License a breeze. You don’t need to drive to a campus or sit in a classroom for hours. Our curriculum is 100% online and available from your computer 24 hours a day. We have CE classes approved by the state of Texas to meet all your Continuing Education requirements. You can take them at any time to stay current on your license renewals.
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 approved CE opportunities.
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 licensing exam. This also applies to states like Tennessee that don’t have their own licensing.

Life as a Tennessee Insurance Adjuster
The Weather in Tennessee
Tennessee is a mostly warm state with mild weather, but it does include the Great Smoky Mountains, where snowfall becomes perilous at higher elevations. The state gets the greatest amount of rainfall during the winter and early spring due to thunderstorms, and again in midsummer. Adjusters should be prepared to deal with flood damage when working in Tennessee.
Being a Licensed Insurance Adjuster in Tennessee
You can expect to earn a decent income as an insurance adjuster in Tennessee. Reported salaries range from $38,000 to $64,000 annually. Of course, the level of compensation increases with experience and seniority. Trainees tend toward the lower end of the pay scale, and advanced positions earn the highest incomes.
