The Advanced Forecasting Course has been designed to complement and follow on from the Initial Forecasting Course (incorporating the Basic Instruction Package in Meteorology - BIP-M) after two to three years experience in an operational forecasting environment.
It can also be used to complete basic forecaster training which has been taken elsewhere and is particularly suitable for staff who may shortly be moving to a position of responsibility within a forecasting team.
Aim: To equip a forecaster with the necessary skills to operate at an advanced level within their organisation.
Course length: 10 days.
Location: Courses are held in the excellent Met Office College facilities at our Exeter headquarters.
On completion of this course you will be able to:
"Thank you for your passionate lecture!!! (The best education I've ever got)."
"We learned a lot from the advanced country, the UK. I hope that what we have learned during the past few weeks can spread to the process on producing real-time forecast."
