Announcing AE21's New and Improved Texas Adjuster All-Lines Pre-Licensing Course!
Texas All-Lines Adjuster Pre-Licensing Course
Welcome to AE21’s NEW and IMPROVED Texas All Lines Adjuster Pre-Licensing Course! This course (TX course #26545) is offered by AE21 Online (Provider #33260) with the approval of the Texas Department of Insurance.
This online adjuster licensing program is the most comprehensive licensing program available anywhere in the United States for entry into the field of insurance claims adjusting, and satisfactory completion of this course allows the student to secure a Texas All Lines Adjuster’s license without sitting for the Texas All-Lines Adjuster Examination as issued by Pearson Vue.
The program is comprised of five sections:
- Introduction to Claims and Principles of Insurance
- Casualty (Auto, General & Homeowners Liability, Workers’ Compensation
- Property (Homeowners, Commercial, Inland/Ocean Marine, etc.)
- Automobile Physical Damage (Comprehensive & Collision); and
- Residual Markets, Market Practices, and Adjuster Conduct
Each section offers a sequential, building-block approach to adjuster training that explains insurance principles, identifies factual scenarios with legal and contractual claim exposures, and concludes with best practice applications of claims analysis and adjustment.
The course boasts a multi-medial approach that meets the needs of all learning styles and includes:
- Complete audio narration throughout the course
- Full transcripts of all slides
- Engaging videos
- Enhanced “hands-on” interactivity
Throughout the course, interactive case studies and quizzes gauge understanding and retention and refer the student back to parts not fully understood. After completion of each section, the student is required to pass a comprehensive exam of that area of study. After all five sections are completed, the student will be presented with a comprehensive 150-question Final Exam which must be taken in the presence of a disinterested third-party monitor. Both the student and the monitor must then sign an affidavit in the presence of a notary as required by the Texas Department of Insurance. Upon AE21’s receipt of the completed affidavit, the student will receive a Certificate of Completion which, when provided with the Texas adjuster licensing application, will allow the student to waive Texas’ state-administered exam to secure their all-lines license. It’s a simple as that!

What if I am a non-resident of Texas and DO NOT live in a state that requires adjusters to be licensed…can I designate Texas as my home licensing state?
Yes; by fulfilling the same requirements as a Texas resident adjuster. Note on the Adjuster License Application within Part I; you would check the box for “Adjuster–All Lines Designated Home State Texas” and complete Part II (#3), “Nonresident Adjuster Designated Home State Texas Applicants Only” on page 4 of 14 of the FIN506 application.
NOTE: By designating Texas as the home state, applicants are subject to Texas license compliance standards including fingerprinting and continuing education requirements
As a non-resident wishing to designate Texas as my home licensing state, do I need to provide fingerprints with my application?
In what instances would I be qualified to secure a Texas adjuster's license without taking a licensing course or examination?
There are two (See Part II #2 & 3 listed on page 4 or 14 of the FIN506 license application):
- If you are a non-resident of a reciprocal state and hold an adjuster’s license that is in good standing;
- If you hold a CPCU designation or Associate in Claims (AIC) certification.
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
I loved the way the course was presented! I love that I could read small sections and then be tested on that instead of reading on my own (AIC). I really liked that this course took into account a lot of different coverages. It’s the first time I’ve been successful on a course like this.
“Mr. Greer and his online school AE21.com not only provided what was needed for licensing in the Insurance field as a claims adjuster for Texas Dept. of Insurance, but he was informative and hands on with his students, myself being one. He and his team responded to all inquiries, answered all questions knowledgeably and provided and excellent explanation readying me for a professional career as a claims adjuster. Thank you to Mr. Greer and his team for all their assistance. What a wonderful experience.”
First let me congratulate you on your online course, AE21. I have attached a copy of my background so you would see I am not inexperienced when it comes to handling claims. I took the course as an opportunity to teach a young man and introduce him to our wonderful profession. I found your online course to be both challenging and informative. I was pleasantly surprised to find the sections on ethics and how well you spoke to those issues and how critical they are to our industry going forward. I had the opportunity to speak with April on your staff and found her to be knowledgeable, friendly, and professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to any individual or company looking for a great online course. Again my sincere thanks and I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed taking this course.
This was one of the best courses I have ever taken. I see no reason why every adjuster should not have their all-lines license, and they should use this course to obtain same. If I had been able to obtain my all-lines license in the past with this convenience, I would have and it sure would have changed my career path and where I am today.
Thanks again… I love the AE21 Online courses. They are awesome.
