Responsibility for flood loss reduction is shared by all units of government— local, state and federal—and the private sector.  Fulfilling this responsibility depends on having the knowledge and skills to plan and implement needed floodplain management measures.  The fundamental floodplain management program that most others are built on is the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

This course is designed to provide an organized training opportunity for local officials responsible for administering their local floodplain management ordinance.  The course will focus on the NFIP and concepts of floodplain management, maps and studies, ordinance administration, and the relationship between floodplain management and flood insurance.

Participants may want to complete the following online tutorials:
