Flood Insurance Fundamentals: NFIP Training for Insurance Producers

 

Course Description
In response to the need for flood insurance that private insurers could not meet, Congress passed the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968. This Act established a form of government insurance against flood losses and created the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Coverage under the NFIP is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is underwritten by the federal government. 

Serving as an introduction to flood insurance, this course has been approved to meet FEMA’s minimum training and education requirements for all insurance producers who sell Standard Flood Insurance Policies issued through the National Flood Insurance Program. This course goes beyond the minimum requirements of that outline by adding useful information that makes the stark details in the prescribed course outline clearer and more understandable. 

The course includes the following chapters: 

  • Overview of NFIP
  • Flood Maps and Rating
  • General Rules
  • Covered Property and Additional Coverages
  • Covered Peril and Other Conditions
  • Flood Insurance Legislation
  • Responsibilities
