Here is information on obtaining online training through - FEMA Region 6.
You Have an Important Job, We Have Training
Did you know: The average local floodplain administrator/manager in FEMA Region 6 (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas) has less than 20% of their workload dedicated to floodplain management. But protecting people and property from flooding is a big job. While some of you are full-time and solely dedicated to floodplain management, we recognize that we also have volunteers, part-time staff, emergency managers, mayors, city administrators, building code inspectors, engineers and many more managing the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in your communities.
Each month we will send an email with upcoming training opportunities so you can have the training you need to do your job. Please feel free to forward these to other staff in your community who may be interested. Below we feature three free training opportunities: 1. an elevation certificate course, 2. a Base Level Engineering (BLE) webinar, and 3. a social media outreach webinar.
