Safety Assessment Evaluator Program Training
AIA California Council is offering a one day Safety
Assessment Program Evaluator Training to train civil
engineers, structural engineers, architects, and building
inspectors to do field evaluations of buildings and other
infrastructure for safety. This training is approved by AIA
for CEUs for architects.
Experience in dealing with threats like natural and
man-made disasters such as earthquakes, floods,
hurricanes, and explosions reveals that the number of
total inspections due to nonstructural damage can be
more than three times the number of red-tagged and
yellow-tagged buildings. Most building departments
do not have the ability to perform multitudes of such
inspections in a short period of time, so a strong need
exists to have a cadre of trained professionals available
to assist local governments, along with a program to
manage this cadre.
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 Cal OES
with cooperation from professional organizations,
including the AIA.
This workshop will teach participants to conduct rapid
damage assessments of structures affected by 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 and will
receive a Building Evaluator certification from the state
of California, while also being covered for liability by
the Good Samaritan Laws of California and for personal
injury by the State of California.
The training will be led by Paul Poirier, AIA, LEED AP and certified SAP trainer. A field guide, workbook, lunch, coffee and beverages will be provided. 6 AIA Learning units and credentialing will be given upon completion of this training.
Ticket sales end Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 11:59pm and space is limited.
