Storm Spotter Training ClassStorm Spotter Training Class

National Weather Service St. Louis Public Safety/Spotter Training Severe Storm Spotter Training gives an individual the basic tools you need to be a severe weather spotter. Starting with a blue sky, individuals are taught the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, what features to look for and where to find them. What and how to report information and basic severe weather safety are also covered. The class is a multi-media presentation using still pictures and video. The class typically takes from 2 to 2 1/2 hours, but adjustments can be made for special circumstances. There is only one class that is needed and offered by the National Weather Service to become a volunteer storm spotter. That class is the Severe Storm Spotter Training Class. Everything a person needs to become a spotter is in the class. An Advanced Spotter Training Class was developed in the early 1990's. However due to time and logistical problems, most National Weather Service (NWS) offices no longer offer this class. The spotter training class offered by the NWS St. Louis is a combination of the two, so it covers all the concepts a spotter needs to know. To be listed in the NWS St. Louis Storm Spotter database, you must attend a class taught by NWS personnel. The Spotter Training Class has been POST certified in Missouri! Law enforcement personnel will receive 2 hours continuing education credit for attending the class.
