The 2017 Metro Skywarn Spotter training schedule is now available.

If you didn't take a class last year, you are due to take training. This is a NWS requirement.

Classes run February 25 - May 17. Please pre-register when possible and cancel your tickets if you can no longer make it. This helps our trainers and hosts with planning. You do not need to print the tickets.

Thank you for all you do for your communities!

Please review the calendar for any special registration requirements. Walk-ins are available for most classes, but pre-registration is encouraged.

If you would like to review the slide presentation used in training, please visit the NWS Training Presentation.
