Floodplain Training and Education

2021 Training Dates

One day trainings are normally offered at a few locations around the state during winter (January to March) and in the fall (September to November). Due to restrictions over the past year, our trainings were transitioned to a series of one hour virtual sessions.

A variety of 19 virtual one hour trainings were held March-early May, and were well received. We expect to continue to offer similar virtual trainings as we return to offering in-person training workshops again.

Scheduled trainings will be updated here as more details are available.
