Introduction to Floodplain Management
Three-Day Virtual Training Course
September 14-16, 2021
9:00 am – 4:00 pm each day
This Introduction to Floodplain Management course is designed to familiarize participants with various aspects of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to ensure they have the necessary tools to be successful as local floodplain administrators. Three key topics will be examined and discussed: Welcome to the NFIP – “What the Flood?”, “MAP IT!” (More Acronyms Please), and “That’s a FLAP!” – Floodplain Action Plan: Keys to Success. These topics will prepare the participants to understand their role and responsibility in enforcing the community’s local floodplain ordinance and the NFIP regulations.
The target course audience is for local officials responsible for administering their local floodplain management ordinances, for example:
• Newly hired or newly assigned floodplain administrators / managers
• Current floodplain administrators / managers that are seeking refresher training
• Building codes officials / inspectors
• Permit officials
• City and County engineers
