The WIND Umpire Certification Program was founded in 2003 and is the first curriculum devoted to training professionals who serve as umpires in property insurance appraisals. The WIND Certified Appraiser Program promotes the ethical practices of property insurance appraisers and launched in 2012. Real-life scenarios are utilized in both classes to promote discussion of the duties and responsibilities of each role. In the appraiser course, common issues and problems that often arise are addressed, as well as effective methods and techniques to facilitate an appraisal from beginning to conclusion. The umpire classes focus on ethics and professionalism, process, case law, and the “how to” of acting as an umpire, as well as techniques, forms and awards. The classes also include a discussion of ethical considerations and changes in case law impacting the appraisal process.
PCG also holds certifications including Xactimate Level 3 Mastery, Haag Certified Inspector, Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and National Insurance Crime Training Academy (NICTA).
