HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is offering agent training seminars on flood insurance in several locations across Pennsylvania.  The free seminars will cover basic insurance issues and also focus on how best to assist NFIP policyholders after a flooding event. The seminar is approved for three hours of Pennsylvania continuing education credit, and meets the minimum flood insurance training requirements for the Commonwealth.

At the conclusion of the seminars, attendees with little or no prior NFIP experience will understand important components regarding the flood insurance policy. More experienced attendees will develop an even better understanding of a number of topics including:

  • Standard Flood Insurance Policy's major coverage areas
  • FEMA's elevation certificate
  • Grandfather rules
  • Preferred Risk Policy (PRP) eligibility extension
  • Other flood insurance topics
