FLOODPLAIN ADMINISTRATOR ACCREDITATION TRAINING 2016-17
 

The Arkansas Natural Resources Commission (ANRC), along with the Arkansas Floodplain Management Association (AFMA) and other organizations, provides training for local Floodplain Administrators.  Act 745 of 2003 requires that each community participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) appoints a Floodplain Administrator who is accredited by the Commission.  Accreditation is renewed annually on July 1.  Eight (8) hours of continuing education is required during the 12 months preceding renewal.  Below is a list and description of training approved for renewal of accreditation on July 1, 2017.  Other training may be acceptable if it is approved in advance by Commission staff.  The NFIP class above satisfies the training qualification as do conferences listed at the bottom of the page.
