The Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) is hosting an 8-hour training session on post-disaster safety evaluation procedures (ATC-20) to help you develop the necessary skills to properly assess damaged buildings for occupancy and use following a major disaster. Taught by Structural Engineers with hands-on experience in disasters locally and internationally, you will learn current methods for performing post-disaster safety evaluations of buildings and infrastructure.

Building safety evaluation exercises based on real-life examples of earthquake, tsunami, wind, and landslide damage from significant disasters in the U.S., Taiwan, China, Haiti, Chile, New Zealand and Japan will be presented. Training topics include a detailed presentation of ATC-20 building safety evaluation procedures with an emphasis on the evaluation of critical hospital facilities.
