You’ll be trained in accordance with Xactware’s high standards… so you’ll be prepared for the Xactimate certification exams!

Program Overview

If you are a professional working in the building and insurance repair industry, you understand how important it is to have an accurate repair estimate. That’s why Xactware created the Xactimate user certification tests—to help ensure that those who use Xactimate are proficient and have the skills they need to accurately create an estimate.

  • Be among those considered the best in the industry.
  • Prove to an employer that you have a firm foundation in Xactimate fundamentals and can accurately write an estimate from start to finish.
  • Have your name listed in the Xactware User Certification Directory, helping you market your credentials and expand your business.

Xactware User Certification Levels

Xactware currently offers three levels of user certification for Xactimate (separate from Trainer Certification) in order to independently verify a user’s product knowledge and proficiency. Each level of certification increases in difficulty and is considered a prerequisite for the next level. These certification levels include:

  1. Level 1 certification – Xactimate Fundamentals
    This level of certification verifies that a user has the foundational skills required to create an estimate from start to finish in Xactimate.
  2. Level 2 certification – Xactimate Proficiency (Power User)
    This level confirms that a user has mastered the foundational Xactimate concepts and can use more intermediate Xactimate practices to increase their productivity, efficiency, and accuracy.
  3. Level 3 certification – Xactimate Mastery (Subject Matter Expert)
    This level validates that the user has full mastery of the Xactimate estimating system and can be considered an Xactimate subject matter expert.

A mandatory part of user certification is completing a three-part program at each level that consists of: 1) a practical hands-on lab, where users must create an estimate based on a specific Sketch and scope scenario; 2) a practical exam where the user is asked questions pertaining to the estimate created in the practical lab; and 3) a knowledge exam that consists of multiple choice, true/false, and matching questions.

** Note: User certification is currently available for Xactimate version 27 and Xactimate version 25.
