Free Course: Managing Floodplain Development Through the NFIP

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.
