Which Path is Right for You?
The Xactimate trainer certification program serves a variety of different training objectives and customer needs. The program provides two core paths:
Xactimate Certified Trainer (XCT)
The first path is to become an Xactimate Certified Trainer (XCT). In this path, trainers are trained by Xactware. Those who successfully complete the program receive Xactimate Certified Trainer status, become certified by Xactware, and are given access to valuable training resources. This path typically is intended for professional training organizations who want to maintain a competitive edge by providing the highest quality of Xactimate training available while gaining a competitive edge in the Xactimate training market. Those who complete the requirements are granted the elite status of Xactimate Certified Trainer.
Once certified, Xactimate Certified Trainers (XCT) will have the privilege of providing authorized Xactimate training while being certified and promoted by Xactware. XCT status ensures that Xactimate users are trained in accordance with Xactware’s high standards. This high caliber of training assures that employers and those seeking to be trained on Xactimate are properly trained. Students trained by an Xactimate Certified Trainer are prepared to get the job done right.
Xactware will certify a trainer who completes all requirements for a two-year period. At the end of the two-year period, the certification status will expire and must be renewed.
Xactimate Affiliate Trainer (XAT)
The second path is to become an Xactimate Affiliate Trainer (XAT). In this path, trainers are trained by Xactware and given access to valuable training resources. This path typically is intended for trainers who provide internal training to employees as a business support function. This path is also for trainers who want to provide the highest quality of Xactimate training but are not interested in the competitive advantage of being certified, endorsed, or promoted by Xactware.
After completing the Train-the-Trainer class and passing the Xactimate trainer exam, participants receive a certificate indicating they have completed Xactware’s Train-the-Trainer program.
Because Affiliate Trainers do not participate in an onsite training observation and evaluation like Certified Trainers, they are not certified by Xactware. They are, however, well-prepared to provide high-quality Xactimate training.
The Affiliate Trainer status is good for a two-year period. At the end of the two-year period, the Affiliate Trainer status will expire and must be renewed.
