FEMA Elevation Certificate, the NFIP and Floodplain Management Perspective

APPROVED: NY CE: 1.0 NY Hour for PE/LS

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was scheduled for re-authorization in September 2017 and there have been some short-term extensions, as bills are proposed to continue to reform the program. This class will provide a summary of the current state of the NFIP and how it will influence the Surveying Industry. Meanwhile, demand for Elevation Certificates has never been higher due to driving forces such as Biggert-Waters and the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Acts that are reforming the current NFIP. This course will provide an in-depth look into how the New Elevation Certificate (FEMA form 086-0-33) is utilized by the Insurance Industry to rate a property's flood risk for NFIP Flood Insurance. In addition, it will explain how a local municipality uses the form to enforce their Floodplain Management Ordinance and check floodplain compliance. At the end of the course participants will have a better understanding on how the Elevation Certificate should be completed, correctly, and more accurately, which will improve their residents flood insurance premiums and ensure a flood resilient structure is built. Case studies will be used to illustrate what flood loss preventive solutions are available and how to identify possible solutions using the Elevation Certificate that can dramatically lower an owner's NFIP premium. FEMA's Technical Bulletin 1 on Flood Opening Compliance will be reviewed along with International Code Council Construction Code and ASCE 24-14 standards.

  1. Explain the Biggert-Waters and Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act.
  2. Distinguish Mitigation options Wet vs. Dry techniques.
  3. Explain how the NFIP rates the flood risk for a property using the Elevation Certificate.
