Description

FEMA now requires all agents selling National Flood Insurance Policies (NFIP) to take an approved flood insurance education course.  This course satisfies the FEMA educational requirements.

Nearly 20,000 communities across the United States and its territories participate in the NFIP by adopting and enforcing floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage. In exchange, the NFIP makes federally backed flood insurance available to homeowners, renters, and business owners in these communities. Community participation in the NFIP is voluntary.

Flood insurance is designed to provide an alternative to disaster assistance to reduce the escalating costs of repairing damage to buildings and their contents caused by floods. Flood damage is reduced by nearly $1 billion a year through communities implementing sound floodplain management requirements and property owners purchasing of flood insurance. Additionally, buildings constructed in compliance with NFIP building standards suffer approximately 80 percent less damage annually than those not built in compliance.

Agents who sell flood insurance are required to take this course.

Course Objective:  To satisfy the FEMA educational requirement under the National Flood Insurance Program
