Online Spotter Training Classes Now Available

Two online spotter training class modules are now available!  These online courses provide an excellent introduction to storm spotting and a way to refresh one's knowledge.

Please note that these classes do NOT replace attending a spotter training class in your local area. There is significant value in training alongside fellow spotters and learning about the local warning systems and community spotter network.  in the Quad Cities service area, spotter training classes are conducted from late February through early April.  Keep an eye on the Spotter Training Calendar in early 2012 as classes begin to schedule to find a class near your community.
