Current Spotter Training

NWS Spokane works closely with county emergency managers and officials throughout eastern Washington and north Idaho to organize and schedule weather spotter training classes. The training sessions are free and the public is invited. For a schedule of upcoming spotter training classes, please see the table below. Training lessons last around 1.5 hours and include information on NWS operations, products and services, as well as spotter procedures. 

We will plan on virtual online training this spring. This will require a computer or device with internet access.  
Stay tuned as we are working on setting up additional dates.
