Xactimate trainer joins RSA as Estimating class instructor


BURLINGTON, WA — Sean M. Burgess has joined the Restoration Sciences Academy training team as the lead Estimating class instructor.

As an Xactimate Affiliate Trainer (XAT), experienced field adjuster and estimator, Burgess has extensive knowledge of Xactimate’s estimating software, including advanced XactimiteSketch features. He brings more than 10 years of experience using Xactimate from both the insurer and contractor perspectives.

"When learning Xactimate, it's not unusual for someone to learn from a friend or coworker, and others may be self-taught,” notes Burgess. “There can be gaps in understanding features or workflows.” Sean's Xactimate classes for RSA are designed to fill those gaps by focusing on core Xactimate estimating skills and increasing knowledge and proficiency in writing more thorough and detailed estimates.

Students that have attended Burgess’s RSA Estimating courses are amazed by the immediate value of the training to their bottom line. “I will make it mandatory that my employees take this class,” commented recent attendee and business owner David Rost on the final day of the class. “It has made me more money already than it cost.”

RSA’s Estimating courses (ES283, ES280) prepare students for Xactware Level 1 and Level 2 certification. Students achieving this level of certification have demonstrated mastery of key Xactimate concepts and can use more intermediate Xactimate procedures to increase efficiency, productivity and accuracy. Each course is also approved for two continuing education credits through the IICRC.

RSA’s Xactimate classes includes Estimating 280 (basic/intermediate, hands-on) and Estimating 283 (basic/intermediate, hands-on, live flood environment). More information on RSA’s Xactimate courses is available at the RSA website: Courses.RestorationSciencesAcademy.com.

Sean Burgess is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He will be teaching the estimating courses at locations throughout the U.S.
