If you're unable to attend live spotter training, you can participate in an online course via the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) COMET Program. These courses can be completed at your own pace, and serve as an excellent alternative to in-person training offered by the NWS.
There are currently no outreach events scheduled.
