Building Evaluator Training Coming to Arlington

When a disaster strikes, one of a community’s first tasks is to determine whether its buildings are safe for habitation. Too often, the structures that must be examined greatly outnumber the trained city inspectors. You can help bridge this gap.  

The AIA Safety Assessment Program (SAP) trains architects, engineers, building officials, and inspectors to evaluate homes, buildings, and infrastructure in the aftermath of a disaster. This workshop teaches you to conduct rapid damage assessments of structures affected by earthquakes, wind, and water. Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to consistently and safely assess structures for habitability. You’ll also receive a nationally recognized Cal OES registration ID card from the state of California.
