COURSE DESCRIPTION:  Intended for licensed architects, engineers, or building code officials, this course certifies attendees as Building Evaluators in the California Safety Assessment Program (SAP).  The program is managed by CalOES with cooperation from professional organizations, including the AIA.  It utilizes volunteers and natural aid resources to provide professional architects, engineers and certified building inspectors to assist local governments in safety evaluation of their built environment in an aftermath of a disaster.  SAP is the preferred training standard of the AIA Disaster Assistance Program, which provides leadership, advocacy, and training to architects who are interested in volunteering their professional skills in times of crisis.  This workshop will teach participants to conduct rapid damage assessments of structures affected by natural and man-made disasters, including earthquakes, wind and water.  It also teaches the appropriate protocol for coordinating with emergency managers to limit professional liability.  Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to consistently and safely assess structures for habitability.  Licensed architects, engineers, and code officials will be registered as CalOES SAP Evaluators.
