Acquire and/or update skills needed to be an effective and safe storm spotter for the National Weather Service (NWS) SKYWARN program at one of the following events.
Note that the NWS will not present the training in Fort Wayne in 2014. The events listed below are the ones that are closest to Fort Wayne. The only other 2014 SKYWARN training sessions presented by the northern Indiana NWS office are located in LaGrange, Logansport and South Bend, Indiana, and Archbold and Lima, Ohio.
The NWS recommends that all spotters and future spotters complete the Free Online Spotter Training prior to attending these training sessions.
Please share this information! Every year, after that year’s training sessions are over, NWS offices get calls from people inquiring about training. Help the NWS and future spotters by spreading the word on social networks, etc. If you live outside the area covered by the Northern Indiana NWS office, go to www.weather.gov to find the office that serves your county and look up that office’s website to view its training schedule.
