This course trains USACE staff to include managers, engineers, geologists, technicians, economists, public affairs and office of counsel personnel in engineering, construction and operations divisions on aspects of the Corps of Engineers Levee Safety Program. The course is also open to non-USACE participants interested or involved with the USACE Levee Safety Program. The course intent is to present an overview of the Levee Safety Program to include history, levee system facts and functions, the risk framework and risk-informed decision making. The course will focus on Levee Safety Program elements that achieve the USACE “life safety being paramount” mission. Levee Safety Program elements covered throughout the course include inspections, leveed area inundation scenarios, screenings and portfolio management, roles and responsibilities, risk reduction actions, stakeholders and partners, shared responsibilities and solutions, emergency planning and response, risk management and risk communication.

Train U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) staff to include managers, engineers, geologists, and technicians on aspects of the USACE levee inspection procedures. The course is also available to non-USACE participants interested or involved with the USACE levee safety inspections. The course intent is to teach new levee inspectors how a variety of levee inspections are conducted. The course will focus on teaching inspectors how to use the inspection checklist, software, and tools required to complete an inspection. The course will also inform students how levee inspections fit within the Levee Safety Program’s risk framework and who should participate during the inspection process. Levee inspection steps covered throughout this course include planning and preparing for inspections, executing safe inspections, completing an inspection report using the proper software, documenting inspection data in the National Levee Database, and effectively communicating results with partners, sponsors, and stakeholders.
