Elevation Certificate Training

Posted on: October 7th, 2016 by Caroline Stupple

Join the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program and Rob Flaner, Certified Floodplain Manager of Tetra Tech, on Monday, October 17 in Mount Tremper, NY at the Emerson Resort and Spa for a special Elevation Certificate Workshop. Event will run from 9:00am to 3:30pm and lunch will be provided. The training will guide participants through all the necessary steps to correctly complete and review a FEMA elevation certificate. Topics to be discussed include:

  • The importance of elevation certificates in sound floodplain management
  • Tutorial on how to find elevation certificates online, how to use fillable forms and instruction on how to properly submit them
  • Instruction on how to properly fill out each section of the elevation certificate with description on how and where information for each item can be obtained
  • How to identify the proper building diagram for Item A7 in the elevation certificate
  • In-depth discussion on the difference between each building diagram with special attention paid to common buildings found in the Catskill region
  • Guidance on  completion of surveys including methodologies and protocols for all elevation certificate Section C fields
  • Common errors associated with elevation certificates and how to identify and correct them
  • Appropriate  filing and storage strategies with emphasis on how to be compliant with Community Rating System (CRS) requirements
  • Examples and exercises for participants to practice the knowledge gained in the workshop

Additionally, we anticipate that Certified Floodplain Managers, Code Enforcement Officials, and Professional Land Surveyors will receive approximately six hours of continuing education credit upon completion of this course.

The workshop is free, however, registration is required due to limited space. Please contact Brent Gotsch at 845-688-3047 Ext. 3 or  bwg37@cornell.edu to register for the course or if you have questions.
