FRM Short Course Hits 500!
9th December 2017
The FMA-OEH Floodplain Risk Management Short Course run at the University of Technology, Sydney has hit the 500 graduates mark!
Over the years since its inception the course has been very successful and completed by a range of participants including Council officers, consultants and undergraduate students.
The course provides informative lectures and interactive tutorials for those who want to learn more about developing and implementing management plans considering best practice.
The course’s in-depth content is taught by FMA Executive Directors and industry professionals, including flood risk and emergency response management and land use planning professionals from NSW Government, local government, and consultancies, drawing on their many years of expertise.
Over three blocks during the year in August, September and October, participants are able to expand their knowledge and understanding of flood risk management and mitigation in Australia and appropriate development within floodplain areas.
The course will be made available again in 2018, with the hopes to make it available to interested parties based in rural areas in the future.
