2017 NWS Grand Rapids Weather Spotter Training Schedule


Spotter training classes for Spring 2017 have been completed across West Michigan!  If you were not able to attend a session this spring, or if you would like additional training, you can take this online MetEd course through the COMET Program. You can also learn more about meteorology and our atmosphere at JetStream - An Online School for Weather.

Once you have completed training, contact the Emergency Management office in your city/county to find out what you can do to become involved with their spotter program.
