Course Length This course is 4 days in length.
Course Description This course provides in-depth instruction and hands-on exercises that develop the skills needed by Certified Floodplain Managers and other Emergency Planners to effectively use the Hazus tools necessary for modeling the impacts on communities from riverine and coastal flooding. This course uses highly advanced modeling based on the E0172 Hazus-MH for Flood. The course provides sophisticated analysis of flood modeling with respect to the needs of local and State Certified Floodplain Managers and Emergency Management personnel
Course Goals This course provides the necessary skills for local and State Floodplain Managers to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from floods. Instruction will emphasize user-supplied flood study inputs to assist the student in developing and calculating the most accurate flood depth and elevation information that can be produced by Hazus-MH for riverine and coastal flood hazards.
Prerequisites Strong Geographic Information System (GIS) experience and completion of the E0313 Basic Hazus-MH course is required. In addition, E0172 Hazus-MH for Flood course is recommended. Participants must currently use or be planning to use GIS and Hazus.
