Student Programs at the CTWP

 

Student opportunities at the NWS Caribbean Tsunami Warning Program (CTWP) are vital in enhancing the educational program for those who wish to get hands-on experience in becoming a tsunami scientist, IT officer, or ET/HMT technician.

The NWS CTWP offers multiple programs and opportunities for students to expand and reach their educational goals. As the job market becomes more competitive, skills obtained through hands-on experience and research will be vital for the future.
