    Thumbs up Claims Consultants - Network Members are needed

    Casey, O’Malley Associates has established a National Network of claims consultants to perform inspections.

    The assignments are coming in and Network Members are needed across North America to perform this work. The number of Network Members per area is limited.

    Inspectors must meet certain experience minimum requirements and pass an online course (only $199) to be entered into the Network. For a limited time, persons taking and passing the COA Claims Consultant Course will also receive a complimentary one-year membership in AEBC, the Association of Expert Building Consultants.

    Join the COA The Right DirectionSM Network now so Mike and Kevin don’t have to keep doing all this work themselves; they want to share the wealth!

    See Home Inspection Claims Consultant Information for more information.

    Is this real? Or an attempt to sell the course? I'm always leery of a job offer that comes with a price tag up front.

    Could Casey O'Malley Associates be lowering their standards to NACHI level.
    Online testing...?

    I have been with them since they started this network, it is mostly EW type work. If you have EW experience they might not require the course.

    Gentlemen:

    Thanks for your interest. The requirements for our Network are here:

    Home Inspection Claims Consultant Information

    It's not just an online course and the requirements can vary per state or assignment.

    Thanks!

    I looked into it when they first started it, but I have no intention of paying them to develop a list of experts.

    If they want a list of experts they should invite people in at no cost to enlist them

    Scott may be happy paying to do things that way, but I have this thing about PAYING THEM to HELP THEM ... just does not pass the smell test in my opinion.

    The way they have it set up is no different than paying to advertise on their list - something I will not do.

    I pay for advertising and thats fine. Its a part of doing business. However I won't pay someone for the promise/insinuation that paying them will get me work. Let me register and deduct the $199 from the invoice of the 1st job and I'll see it as a legitimate and serious situation.

    Sounds like a workable plan. I would go for something like that. Definitely would not pay in front on the CHANCE of getting some work. You like my quals or you don't, make a call and go with it.

    I can agree with that route.

    That way, if they make money for us, we make money for them ... otherwise it is just making money for them, and ... possibly ... us ... if ... as I said, does not pass the smell test for me as it is currently set up.

    From their web site:

    "This class is approximately 65 minutes of narrated slides with numerous pages of actual legal case examples for review after enjoying the slide show. Completion requires passing a 25 question final exam (70% minimum score).
    For a limited time, passing of the COA Claims Consultant class includes a free one-year membership in the Association of Expert Building Consultants. Only $199."

    65 min and 25 questions @70% = 18 correct answers = $11 per correct question and $3 per min of video class. Less the free first year membership @ $199 = free.

    Sounds like a bargain to me.

    Scott, how many assignments and how much is the return on investment.

    I can just imagine if they did not charge anything that every hack with a flashlight would be applying.

    (Edit change: removed the rate I get)

    Notice that the $199 fee includes membership for the FIRST year ONLY, not continuous.

    And when done on the computer ... who cares ... the result would probably be that the vast majority would not be able to hack their way through the information ... and if the vast majority were able to ... then just how 'specialized and expert' would that make that group?

    As I have said ... just does not pass the smell test for me.
