Online Weather Spotter Training
  April 18th, 2020

If you can’t participate in the online spotter training offered by the Wilmington NWS office, here is an alternative source. This course is recognized by the National Weather Service and you can register your completion with the Wilmington office. Full details and instructions in this PDF.

If you attend the Wilmington Online session you do not need to take this course.

Course Description: The SKYWARN Spotter Training Course is being offered by the COMET® Program as part of its educational partnership with the NWS. Questions about the Spotter program need to be directed to your local Weather Forecast Office (WFO) and its Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM).

This course has been officially designated by the NWS as a nationally-uniform training course for all SKYWARN Spotters. This course can be taken as a supplement to the face-to-face SKYWARN Spotter training sessions held in every WFO. Check with your local WFO for any additional requirements or recommendations.

Supplemental local spotter training is at the discretion of your local NWS forecast office, the Warning Coordination Meteorologist and the Skywarn weather spotter focal point. There maybe supplemental training on additional local weather hazards, such heavy snow, ice storms, flooding, etc., and their reporting that you can only achieve through local spotter training. https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_course.php?id=23
