This certification program provides a comprehensive body of knowledge to the surveyor about his or her relationship with the National Flood Insurance Program. Surveyors are a major link in the entire NFIP system. To adequately perform the duties to fulfill NFIP requirements, a surveyor must expand his or her knowledge on this specialized aspect of the profession. Over an intense three day period of instruction, the surveyor is exposed the many flood issues including the National Flood Insurance Program, Code of Federal Regulations Title 44, Flood Insurance Rate Maps, Letters of Map Change (LOMA, LOMR-F, LOMR), no rise certifications and the Elevation Certificate. Following this training, there is a four hour exam administered to assess the surveyor’s floodplain knowledge. PDH’s are offered for the course work, but not for the exam.
If your state is interested in adopting the CFS program, please contact Bart Crattie (Tennessee) to arrange the training session and exam in your state or region.
