If you are already familiar with the Elevation Certificate, this class will keep you up to date with details of the form, section by section, and any new changes resulting from the newest revisions. If you are new to Elevation Certificates, the class will provide enough information to get you started in completing them. We will point out how the form is to be completed while tying it back to its roots in the National Flood Insurance Program, including discussion of Base Flood Elevations and several sample problems to practice completion of the form under a variety of circumstances.

Participants will learn:

  • Documenting sources of information entered on the form
  • Distinctions between various building diagrams, and effects on field work
