Sedgwick has announced a partnership with the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) to help design, develop and deliver accredited Property Flood Resilience (PFR) training on behalf of the UK’s Environment Agency.
The partnership will “advance flood risk management” by increasing competence, consistency and confidence for the PFR community.
Ian Gibbs, national technical manager at Sedgwick will be “actively involved” with CIWEM, as part of the team writing and delivering the training materials.
The training will be delivered online, virtually and in person, and will be tailored for three specific target audiences – including industry professionals, Environment Agency employees, and other Risk Management Authorities (RMAs) such as local flood authorities, water companies and drainage authorities.
Ian Gibbs said: “The training will be beneficial to both brokers and insurers as well as to the flood/construction industry, as it will enable all parties to raise standards of PFR.
“The rising knowledge levels in the Environment Agency and Local Flood Authorities is an additional strand to the training. I am most grateful to CIWEM for their trust and look forward to working with them to achieve the best outcomes for PFR.”
