Structural Engineering Emergency Response (SEER) Training

SEA-WI is proud to announce that SEER Training will be offered
on Friday, March 6, 2020, in Cedarburg, WI.

All available spots have now been filled.  Email [email protected] if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.


This training will follow the guidelines of the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) Safety Assessment Program (SAP), 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.

The training will be conducted live and in person by Douglas L. Fell, PE of the Minnesota Structural Engineers Association (MNSEA). Doug is a CalOES Assessor, Coordinator and Instructor, and the managing principal of Structural Resource Center LLC. He was the lead structural engineer for the Minneapolis Metrodome roof collapse stabilization project. Doug is the chairperson of the MNSEA SEER Committee and also serves on the NCSEA SEER Committee.

SEA-WI is able to offer this training for only $75/person for SEA-WI members, and $125/person for non-members (see for information on membership). Due to the length of the training, both breakfast and lunch will be provided to all attendees and is included in the registration cost for the event.

In addition to the CalOES SAP training, this event will also include an update on the SEA-WI SEER Committee. Doug Fell will also speak about the MSEA SEER Risk Mitigation subcommittee which is developing risk management tools for working on emergency response projects and volunteering. An update will also be provided regarding AIA-WI’s Rapid Assessment Strike (RAS) teams and the “Wisconsin Disaster Assessment Plan and Procedures” document that has been developed for implementation in future events.
