Event description

Description

Post-disaster Safety-Assessment Program (SAP) training provides architects, engineers, and building inspectors with the knowledge to provide rapid assessments of homes and buildings in the aftermath of a disaster.

All building industry professionals are welcome to attend. In addition, certain licensed practitioners will be eligible to perform post-disaster assessments after successfully completing SAP training as certified Building Evaluators:

  • Licensed Architects
  • Registered civil, structural, or geotechnical engineers
  • Certified building inspectors

This full day, in-person, all-hazards, training course will include the SAP Building Evaluator Manual. Attendees will receive two (2) field manuals from the Applied Technology Council (ATC): ATC-45 Safety Evaluation for Buildings after Windstorms and Flood; and ATC-20 Post-earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings.

AIA SAP instructors share personal experiences from the field and will walk attendees through interactive case studies. Attendees will understand chain of command in declared disasters and safety precautions to deploy into the field. Our instructor for this training will be Paula Loomis, FAIA. Paula is a former AIA Disaster Assistance Committee member, heads up Virginia's Disaster Assistance Program and has responded to a variety of hazard events during her time with the Coast Guard.

6.5 AIA HSW CEUs will be earned. Non-AIA members will receive certificates.
