Heavy Equipment Certification Course

PDA’s team of highly-trained specialists gets you back to business faster by quickly and accurately appraising your specialty equipment damage.

Thanks to our Heavy Equipment Certification Course, we maintain a national team of qualified specialty equipment appraisers. Our goal is to avoid costly claims revisions by delivering complete, thorough appraisals the first time.

PDA appraisers are trained using processes that ensure reliable, repeatable results to assess a wide range of specialty equipment damage. This includes alternative parts usage (APU), which teaches appraisers to deliver faster, cost-effective repairs by finding used parts immediately online instead of waiting for equipment dealers to reply with the costs of OEM parts.

The certification course also trains specialists on how to reduce overlap in estimates and write specialty equipment appraisals on-site. And every student gets first-hand experience at a repair shop and salvage yard.

Nothing is “standard” about specialty equipment claims. That’s why PDA appraisers are trained to produce a return on your investment by responding quickly, estimating accurately and consistently documenting findings in the appraisal file.
