Online SKYWARN Spotter Classes 

Have you always wanted to become a NWS SKYWARN Storm Spotter but don't have time to attend one of our in-person classes?  Are you looking for something for your community group or classroom to get involved in?  Are you a Tennessee resident?  NWS Nashville would like to invite you to become a SKYWARN Storm Spotter!  

These online classes will allow individuals to complete the course in the comfort of their own home or office using the extremely user-friendly computer program, Go-To Meeting.  The only requirement will be speakers on your computer to listen and if you want to ask questions, you will need to have a VOIP microphone. Additionally, they can be viewed on
Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone and Android. 

To sign up for an online class, simply click on the link beside the date/time you want to attend, fill out the form and we will forward you a link to register on the Go-To Meeting website.  Register, download the FREE software, and BAM! You can attend the 1.5 - 2.0 hour online class. 

NOTE:  These classes are specially designed and taught for Middle Tennessee residents.  While the spotter concepts are the same from office to office, the reporting methods can vary.  If you take our class, you will still need to contact the office responsible for the area you live to get the reporting methods for that office.
