Overview

Home Flood Risk Assessment Training

Study the theory and gain technical practice in identifying the broader factors that influence urban household floods in Canada. We will examine the impact of climate change, municipal engineering and practices, government land development policies and building and electrical codes on the risk of floods. We will provide insight into how the availability of flood risk insurance for homeowners has evolved. You will gain an in-depth understanding of how to complete a visual assessment of overland, infiltration and sewer backup risks at homes built during different eras of development, identify opportunities to reduce these risks and where further investigation is needed. You will be able to practice and demonstrate proficiency in the use of a nationally recognized flood risk assessment tool by completing one full flood risk assessment at a home of your choosing at the end of this course.
