The schools, which cover a wide variety of crops, are important because they ensure that all adjusters are trained on industry approved loss procedures. This provides consistency among all companies and assures farmers that their losses are adjusted accurately and fairly. The schools are run through the NCIS Regional/State Committees, and we can’t thank them enough for their commitment to the educational process and in providing their time and energy to ensure each school is successful.
