Earn a Rutgers Flood Hazard Area Certificate By Taking These Three NJ Control Act Rules Classes!
The Garden State has some of the most stringent flood mitigation and stream corridor protection rules in the country.

If you prepare or review flood hazard area applications, this NEW Flood Hazard Area Certificate Program will help you navigate the technical issues and regulatory requirements involved in obtaining NJDEP area permits and approvals.

This three-day program covers all aspects of NJ's flood hazard area program, from basic concepts, such as what is a flood hazard area and riparian zone, to complex engineering and environmental issues.

Plus, NJDEP instructors, including Vince Mazzei, PE, the author of these rules, will be on hand to answer questions.

It is strongly recommended (but not required) that you complete the full three-day program.
