Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes alternative mitigation measures intended for a variety of housing types that cannot feasibly be elevated. The guidance applies to a variety of residential structures, including single family homes, and many mid-rise multi-family residential buildings.


Floods can happen anywhere at any time, which is why it is important to be prepared and to take steps before a flood event to protect your property from costly damage.
