Marine fire investigator certification


#1

So I recently had an interview with a major US all lines (auto, residential, commercial, maritime, etc) insurer. While I did not get the current job, they may be interested in me in the future. Partially because of my maritime background. The interviewers said they had recently worked a maritime fire loss in Georgia where an investigator representing another party showed up. He was a “certified maritime fire investigator” or something to that effect. It was “recommended” to me to look into it.

Has anyone heard of it, know anything about it?

As a holder of a Florida All Lines Adjuster license I have not heard of a “Certified Maritime Fire Investigator”. What they may be talking about is certification as a Marine Investigator which covers fire investigation. The organization is The International Association of Marine Investigators. Check out there website for more information at www.iami.org
