About the WIND Appraiser Certification 


The WIND Appraiser Certification prepares insurance professionals to act as an appraiser in the appraisal process. The first part of the session will deal with ethics. The mechanics of the appraisal process will then be discussed at length. This discussion will include everything from choosing an umpire, to how to bring the appraisal to a successful conclusion, by either agreeing with the other appraiser or presenting your position at the umpire meeting. The final segment will address the ramifications of the statutes and case law in the various states and how it impacts the appraisal process.  

Note: To be designated as a WIND Certified Appraiser and/or WIND Certified Umpire, a separate application is required and will be provided following the seminar.
