  Presenter: Kurt Luecke, CFM  
 

Hour 1: This course provides insight into the importance of proper foundation flood vents and compliance with Building Codes and FEMA standards and how they can effectively prevent major damage to buildings due to flooding. The course will review applicable codes pertaining to foundation flood venting, including a complete review of FEMA’s new Technical Bulletin TB-1.

After the course, participants will have a thorough understanding of the difference between nonengineered openings and engineered openings and the important role they play in designing a sustainable structure.

Hour 2: This program will review FEMA’s Technical Bulletin 1-08 and ASCE 24-14 regulations for foundation openings including the important role they play in mitigating flood damage and lowering NFIP insurance costs. It will also highlight FEMA/ASCE guidance used to evaluate both Non-Engineered and Engineered openings and how to address them on the Elevation Certificate to assure they meet all compliance and coverage requirements outlined within.

After the program, participants will have a thorough understanding of existing guidance governing foundation flood openings, applicable codes and their importance to designing a more sustainable structure.
