Learn how to avoid errors that are causing many communities to miss the mandatory CRS EC prerequisites.

This course will:
  • provide detailed training on completing a FEMA Elevation Certificate (EC) accurately and in its entirety, allowing full compliance with any program that requires submission of a FEMA EC.
  • review the new EC and provide guidance on implementation and use.
  • cover EC requirements for surveying, foundation flood openings, and certification.
  • review the Community Rating System (CRS) requirements for an EC and those portions that can differ from other programs.
  • identify the portions of the EC instructions that should not be used, in order to achieve full compliance with all programs.
  • include common errors and omissions, review of the various EC building diagrams, and real-world examples.
  • Learn to complete a FEMA EC in order to satisfy the requirements of any program.
  • Understand the data needs for each individual EC section.
  • Understand how the EC is used by CRS.
  • Change attendee’s approach to ECs from ‘minimum needs’ to ‘best practice’.
  • Avoid common mistakes that can invalidate the EC for certain programs.
