Based on ATC-20/45 methodologies and forms, the SAP training course provides engineers, architects and code-enforcement professionals with the basic skills required to perform safety assessments of structures following disasters. Licensed design professionals and certified building officials will be eligible for SAP Evaluator certification and credentials following completion of this program and submission of required documentation.

This California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) Safety Assessment Program (SAP), presented by the National Council of Structural Engineering Associations (NCSEA), is one of only two post-disaster assessment programs that will be compliant with the requirements of the forthcoming Federal Resource Typing Standards for engineer emergency responders.

Presenter: Jason Spotts, P.E., is a civil engineer with the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. He served six years as a civil engineer in the United States Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps. His duties included responding to emergencies or planning and preparing for humanitarian assistance and disaster response incidents. Prior to serving in the military, he worked for a geotechnical engineering firm in Glenwood Springs, CO and a civil design firm in Chico, CA. Jason also has four years of experience as a fire fighter, with two years of that as an EMT.
