Brief Description
Training on tools & technologies available to assess coastal community hazards & vulnerabilities.
Full Description
This one-day performance-level training course provides training on the available tools for the assessment and planning for natural hazards and vulnerabilities that uniquely affect coastal communities. Examples of these hazards are short term events such as high surf, storm surge, and tsunami inundation, or long term threats from sea level rise and coastal erosion.

The goal of this course is to enable participants to:
-Identify methods and considerations for assessing hazards and vulnerabilities of coastal communities
-Compare and select sources and methods for collecting coastal hazard and vulnerability data
-Utilize available web-based tools to conduct a preliminary hazard and vulnerability assessment in their community
As a performance-level course, this course aims to provide a detailed overview of the tools and technologies available to assess the hazards and the vulnerabilities of coastal communities.   These tools include real-time data collection tools and technologies, as well as web-based assessment tools, such as NOAA’s Digital Coast tools.  The course will include a guided exercise in which participants will learn to apply these tools in conducting a vulnerability assessment in their coastal communities.  This course will build on the first course of the series, Coastal Hazards Awareness, by supplementing the awareness knowledge with tools and skills for practical use.

Target Audience:
As a performance-level course, the target audience for this course are coastal managers, emergency managers and planners that perform coastal hazard assessments, vulnerability assessments, and develop hazard mitigation, recovery and resilience plans in coastal areas. The course is best suited for those with some technical experience working with coastal data and hazard analysis. The complete audience list would include emergency managers, coastal zone managers, federal/state/tribal/territorial/local government planners, developers, private sector planners and engineers, public utilities, and public works.
