Insurance assessor training curricula may relate to policyholder claim appraisal, investigation and validation. Through training sessions, attendants also learn about claim adjusting and examination procedures, as well as litigation claims.


A high school diploma or GED diploma is usually necessary for an insurance assessor position, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Employers prefer job candidates who have a bachelor's or associate degree for a senior role or a position entailing supervisory responsibilities.

Areas of Focus

The BLS reports that new insurance assessors receive on-the-job training. Employees generally need one or two years of experience and training with experienced professionals, according to O*Net Online. Insurance assessors learn to examine policyholder claims to determine insurance coverage, interviewing claimants and negotiating claim settlements as necessary.


A training program teaches an insurance assessor about access software, analytical or scientific software, and insurance claims fraud detection software. The assessor also learns about document management software, fraud and abuse management system, computer-aided design software and financial analysis software.
