Earthquake Basics, Effects on Buildings and Post Incident Damage Assessment
The course will provide a basic overview of Earthquakes as to why they occur, where they are more likely to occur, how they affect the structures. Methods of measuring the level of intensity are discussed so that Insurance adjusters can better assess damages related to claims. Also covered are reasons for the failures in the ground and in the structures that are present. Earthquake damages to different building types and materials are discussed in detail. The effects of earthquakes on the infrastructure are also presented along with examples from past earthquakes so that Insurance claims can be better understood by the client and the steps to be taken after the earthquake are discussed.

At the conclusion of the course, the participants are expected to be confident about the basics of seismic events, how to handle their Insurance related claims/clients, damages on the structures and how they are inspected.
