Introduction to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP 101) is a comprehensive introduction to the information needed to implement a local floodplain management program.  The primary objective of this training is to provide floodplain managers, planners, environmental scientists, and insurance professionals in Washington with an introduction to the principals of floodplain management and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Additionally, the course will focus on the implementation of floodplain management requirements found at 44 CFR 60.3 and RCW Chapter 86.16.


The course will be delivered in five 2.5 hour virtual sessions on Zoom. The sessions will take place from 1:30 - 4:00 pm on December 7, 8, 14, 15, and 16. 


Participants will have the option to log on 15 minutes early on day 1 for a brief introduction to Zoom. Additionally, once registration is full the CTP will reach out to the participants to sign up for 1 additional small group session that will focus on completing a mapping exercise with an instructor. This additional mapping session will be 30 minutes long and take place on Zoom.
