Flood Insurance Training Requirements and Providers
for Property & Casualty Insurance Producers

Section 207 of the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2004 requires all producers selling flood insurance policies under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) be properly trained and educated about the NFIP to ensure producers may best serve their clients.

In order to continue their authority to solicit, negotiate or sell flood insurance, all New York licensed resident insurance producers who sell flood insurance policies through the NFIP must comply with the minimum training requirements of section 207 of the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2004, and basic flood education as outlined at 70 Fed. Reg., 52,117 (Sept. 1, 2005) or such later requirements as published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The failure to comply with this basic training requirement may jeopardize the producer’s authority to write insurance through the NFIP.

Accordingly and in cooperation with state insurance regulators and the insurance industry, FEMA has established minimum training and education requirements. This Department has reviewed the course material for flood education courses of the following Approved Provider Organizations and has found these courses to be in compliance with the standards set forth by FEMA. Producers completing these courses will satisfy the minimum FEMA requirements and earn continuing education credits toward the renewal of their insurance licenses.
