2018 NWS Weather Spotter Training Schedule
  January 20th, 2018

The National Weather Service Office in Wilmington has posted the 2018 Spotter Training Schedule

Classes are free and open to the public, but some may require advanced registration.  You do not need to be a resident of the county in which a talk is being held in order to attend. Each class lasts about 2 hours and is led by a National Weather Service meteorologist who will discuss techniques and safety for severe weather spotting and Amateur Radio Personnel who will give a brief overview of HAM Radio Operation during activation. Once you attend a class, you are an officially trained spotter. Questions? Contact: Gary Clark, kc8tnd@mocoares.org
