FEMA P-749, Earthquake-Resistant Design Concepts: An Introduction to the NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures

The training has been designed to encourage design and construction practices that address earthquake hazard and minimize the resulting risk to life and property.  Understanding the basis for the seismic regulations in the nation’s building codes and standards is important to those outside the earthquake science and engineering community, including elected officials, decision makers in the insurance and financial communities, individual building or business owners, and other concerned citizens.  The intent of this training is to provide interested individuals with an easily understandable explanation of the intent and requirements of seismic design in general and the NEHRP Provisions in particular.
