Designed and delivered by CIWEM & Partners and commissioned by the Environment Agency, this comprehensive suite of Property Flood Resilience (PFR) training unifies the PFR industry and establishes competencies for those delivering PFR in accordance with the Code of Practice for PFR.
This training suite of 24 modules is designed specifically for industry professionals already delivering PFR services and measures. The modules will provide specific technical training under each standard of the Code of Practice for Property Flood Resilience to upskill and align the industry on a unified approach to PFR delivery. Those completing the required training and demonstrating the relevant industry experience will be invited to apply to become a 'Certified Professional' in the delivery of flood resilience measures.
The Foundation modules introduce the attendees to the elements of property flood resilience (PFR) within the context of flood risk management. It will provide answers to what is it like to have your home flooded? What is PFR – resistance and resilience? Why is PFR needed? What are its limitations and where can things go wrong? What are the issues that need to be addressed? The Foundation modules provide the appropriate foundation and introduction to professionals and stakeholders of property flood resilience to understand the background and considerations of implementing PFR approaches for the property and end user. The training also aims to provide an entry point for the reminder of the PFR Code or Practice training programme. Please note this Foundation Training is a prerequisite for all technical training modules.

The CoP 2 modules provide the appropriate training and information to allow the attendees to successfully undertake a property survey in accordance with the standards set in Standard 2 of the Code of Practice. The CoP2 modules aim to equip the attendees with the knowledge/skills and confidence to undertake a survey of the property and understand the end user requirements. The survey aspect will focus on the understanding of the construction and use of the building and the current level of PFR so options can be considered bearing in mind the needs of the end user. The training will ensure a clear understanding of the preferences/capability and needs of the end user.
Delivery mode: E-Learning
The CoP 4 modules deliver the required knowledge in order to ensure students acquire the appropriate levels of understanding and competence that will be required in order to successfully and competently recognise, evaluate, deliver and fit a broad range of property level flood resistance and resilience products and services.
The quality of construction and delivered flood resisting measure will ensure that the PFR measures that are specified and designed after site, risk and building evaluations; will deliver the levels of flood resilience or recoverability that are intended.
Delivery mode: Live Virtual / Residential, E-Learning
The CoP 6 modules provide a summary of the roles and responsibilities for the effective operation and maintenance of installed PFR measures to the designed level of resilience.
The training aims to ensure that the course attendees are clear on all roles and responsibilities for all stakeholders in the Operation and Maintenance processes. The attendees should understand what product information to capture and record throughout the life of the PFR products, be able to identify when product maintenance and/or replacement is required and/or the flood resilience has changed from the design. They should also understand where and why post-flood investigations may be applicable following a flood event, and how to successfully undertake these inspections, including inspection requirements for each individual PFR measure and the system as a whole.
