The purpose of this course is to familiarize the engineer with multihazard design. In this course, the design methods used to resist the effects of each natural hazard are discussed in the context of the design methods for the other natural hazards. This integrated approach is a key aspect of multihazard design that must be reflected in a larger integrated approach to the whole building design.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Comparison of the Hazards
  • Comparison of the Potential Losses
  • Fire and Life Safety
  • Multihazard Design Interactions

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
