FRM Short Course to be Trialled
2nd July 2020
FMA is excited to announce that we are now working with the University of Technology-Sydney (UTS) and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to develop a virtual Flood Risk Management Short Course.
To test the online content we need up to 10 volunteers to participate in the course at no cost in return for providing feedback.
Please note that the 2020 Course is a 'beta-version' and will only be available to UTS students and the 10 FMA reviewers.
The UTS will run the virtual course through their online learning platforms. It will be over the usual three month period, from August to October, in weekly sessions with the presentations loaded onto the student portals to watch at leisure. The presenter will then be available for discussion and tutorials once per week. The course content will be NSW-centric, focussing on An Introduction to Floodplain Risk Management, Effective Consideration of Flood Risk in Land Use Planning and Managing Flood Risk to Existing Properties.
The first online session will be held on Thursday 6 August.
We are asking for expressions of interest from FMA Members, with preference to be given to those in NSW regional areas. Please advise your interest to Glenn Evans: firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your role in Flood Risk Management, and how the course would benefit you and your organisation.
