Develop your structural engineering skills to assess damage and make informed decisions on whether to repair or dismantle damaged buildings.

Understand the need for damage assessments in eastern Libya and share knowledge on how buildings can be restored to pre-flooding conditions. 

RedR UK is offering a free-of-charge, innovative, high-quality online training course aiming to provide technical responders of all disciplines in Libya with an understanding of the strategies and approaches for understanding how to stay effective in humanitarian response, including the importance of safety, security and wellbeing.

Module Aim

To understand the need for damage assessments in eastern Libya and share knowledge on how buildings can be restored to pre-flooding conditions.

Module Objectives

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the need for damage assessments in eastern Libya.  
  • Differentiate whether flooding produces local or global damage, also between minor and severe.  
  • Implement a standardised and cohesive method for assessing building damage, with a focus on evaluating structural performance and flood damage characteristics. 
  • Recognise and qualitatively evaluate typical structural defects encountered when inspecting flood-damaged buildings. 

What is the language of the training?

English

Who should attend?

The module is aimed at those responding to the Libya floods humanitarian crisis, however all emergency responders are more than welcome to join.

This course is offered for free; on a first come first served basis. We will be creating a waiting list, so please email us if the course is already full so we can keep you in mind if anybody drops out.

How to join?

The live online sessions are hosted on Zoom. We recommend joining via the Zoom app. Participants may join the training via a browser, although the browser offers limited access to some of the interactive features of the training. Participants will be expected to have a stable internet connection and to actively participate in all facilitated sessions.

If you complete registration and are no longer able to attend, please cancel your place through Eventbrite. This allows us to offer your place to someone else on the wait list.

Who should I contact if I have a question or query?
