Managing Floodplain Development through the NFIP - E0273

This course provides local, state, tribal, territorial, and Federal officials with the knowledge and skills to administer and enforce floodplain management regulations. The course focuses on the NFIP and concepts of floodplain management, flood maps and studies, ordinance administration, and the relationship between floodplain management and flood insurance.

The course is designed to provide new floodplain administrators with the information and communication techniques to explain the impact of floodplain management decisions on insurance, public safety, and health. The course includes an overview of the natural conditions that form floodplains, the history of floodplain management, and the creation of the NFIP. Prefacing the use of FISs and maps to determine the flood hazard risk is an explanation of the forces of water and types of floods. The course provides an overview of NFIP minimum floodplain management regulations based on the types of flood hazards identified, Substantial Improvement (SI)/Substantial Damage (SD) and describes the use of a permitting process as a floodplain management oversight and compliance tool. Appropriate Letters of Map Change (LOMCs) for specific circumstances and the LOMC forms and possible flood hazard mitigation solutions are also identified. The course explains the roles and responsibilities of a floodplain administrator prior to and after a disaster event.

AFMA will provide donuts and coffee in the morning, snacks and water during the class.  Lunch is on-your-own and  there are many options to choose from within a 5-minute walk of the Park University Gilbert facility.  On site vending machines are also available
