Registration is now open for FEMA’s four-day introductory class to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), Managing Floodplain Development Through the NFIP.
Designed to provide a training opportunity for local officials responsible for administering their local floodplain management ordinance, this course will focus on the NFIP and concepts of floodplain management, maps and studies, bylaw administration, and the relationship between floodplain management and flood insurance. Participants who are certified floodplain managers (CFMs) are also eligible to receive 12 CECs for attending this course. Details about the class are in the attachment below.
The course will be held at the State of Vermont Essex Junction Regional Office in the Fish & Wildlife building from January 8-11 from 8am to 5pm. There is no cost for the course, although there will be an optional cost for lunch ($6/day) or break refreshments ($5 for only beverages for all 4 days, or $10 for drinks and snacks for all 4 days).
Also, ASFPM’s CFM exam will be held on Friday, January 12, 2018, although you will need to register separately for the CFM exam. The exam is open to anyone who wants to sit for the exam, as long as there is room. Registration information for the CFM exam is at www.floods.org.
Class registration is open until Friday, December 15, 2017. After registration closes, you will be sent either a confirmation emai, or notification that you have been placed on the wait list. The class is limited to 35 participants, and preference will be given to Vermont local floodplain managers if more people are registered than seats are available.
