    Thank you Roy. I've been watching FEMA's website for this information and you're two months ahead of them as far as calendar updating.

    I'm curious if anyone knows. Assuming all goes well at the workshop, how long does it take a person pursuing new NFIP certification to obtain all the paperwork necessary to begin doing flood claims? Thank you.

    Tim contact Colonial Claims. They will train you for free(I understand) it just cost you the $50.00 for the license.

    Tim my FCN was issued in 1978 and I haven't handled an NFIP flood claim since 2005 (Katrina). There were flood adjusters working Hurricane Ike, but flood work has been scarce since then.

    I realize that this is not an exact answer to your question.

    Thank you guys. I'm up in NW Indiana/Chicago, where it seems we get enough flood to justify spending the time to get it. I was just debating between a Florida road trip or going to the one in Syracuse, NY.

    Tim,

    I live in Atlanta  we got flooded like you yet no flood seminars have ever been here.  Crawford and Co. holds a conference here in April  You could attend and if so they offer the NFIP course at no charge. The flood seminars used to be only $10.00  plus NFIP gladly sent CE credit to your home state.  When everyone got on the bandwagon with licensing then NFIP joined in and shot the cost up then stopped sending CE credit. 

    You can take Ray's advice with Colonial  but be wary of this I worked with Colonial twice both times I swore I would never do that again as they changed every estimate, every report and refused to pay what we had agreed. I have a very low opinion of Doug B who runs Colonial.   I work with Simsol but they only hire experience  and just having a license is not considered experience.

    And just for Chuck  not sure how you worked flood in Katrina when your last license was that old. NFIP is diligent about your having to be certified every year, regardless of experience, and must have a separate FCN  I have seen vendors try to circumvent that rule and seen NFIP pull all their files and then re=assign those to licensed flood adjusters to completely rework

    Flood work has slowed down with the economy.  i prefer Flood because you do not need a ladder and do not use Xactimate
