Storm Spotter Training April 1

The annual storm spotter training will be held April 1 in conjunction with the 17 annual Central Plains Severe Weather Symposium.  It is being held this year at the Nebraska Innovation Campus located at 2021 Transformation Dr (https://goo.gl/maps/FaLRn8dQkTP2).

The severe weather seminars start at 12:30 with the spotter training at 14:30.

State spotter certification will be offered for those who need it. If you passed the state spotter credentials in 2013 or before, you will need to re-certify. State certification is good for three years. In addition to attending the April 1 training, new and renewed spotters must complete two online courses and take the written exam in order to receive the state credentials.

Online courses are available at http://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_course.php?id=23. You will need to complete the modules titled: Role of SKYWARN® Spotters
and SKYWARN® Spotter Convective Basics. Be sure to send the certificate of completion to k0rpt@arrl.net.
