Last Update/Change January 29, 2015

Notes: Unless indicated classes are free and open to the public with a in-person instructor, you do not have to be a spotter to attend. The classes cover severe weather identification, evaluation, reporting, and safety. Each class runs about 2 hours with a 10-15 minute break midway thru the class. If you can't attend a class in your county feel free to attend a class in a nearby county or city. Unless noted all programs are at the 'Basic' (beginner/refresher) training level. Come earlier for a good seat and parking. Some NWS offices accept on-line training in lieu of in-person training. Milwaukee Skywarn recommends doing the on-line course for the base line training and the in-person session for local and NWS contact information. Training dates are also listed on each NWS website.

2014 NWS Data: 1,904 training programs attended by 73,928 people. U-S total: 350,000-400,000 total trained storm spotters.
Training conducted by Milwaukee Area Skywarn Association, Midwest Storm Trackers, and the National Weather Service.
