The Arkansas Natural Resources Commission (ANRC), with the assistance of the Arkansas Floodplain Management Association (AFMA) and the support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will sponsor a four (4) day course on the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and floodplain management at the ANRC Office on March 12-15, 2018. This course, in its 20th year, provides local communities with the knowledge and skills to help manage development within flood-prone areas.
The course is FREE. However, participants must furnish their own lodging, meals and transportation. Those wishing to attend the course must obtain a Student Identification Number (SID) and fill out an application form (FEMA Form 119-25-2). Go to the following webpage for instructions on obtaining the SID and downloading the FEMA form: http://training.fema.gov/Apply/notice.asp. Once you have completed the FEMA form, mail, fax or email the form to the address below. Since this is a field-deployed course, it does not go to the Emmitsburg address. This course is limited to 30 students, so apply early to reserve your space.
For those interested in becoming a nationally-recognized Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), go to the website arkansasfloods.org. An exam will be given on Friday, March 16, for those interested in becoming a CFM.
