With the WMO/Vlab Centres of Excellence in training on satellite meteorology the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) will organise a training course for the benefit of the African meteorological user community. The course will be for English speaking participants.
The successful completion of the new Basic Satellite online module (at MetEd) is a pre-requisite for the online phase. Candidates will have time until the beginning of the online course to acquire the module certificate.
The online course will be delivered from 20 August - 21 September 2018.
The objective of the satellite applications training course is to optimise the use of data from meteorological satellites and to increase the knowledge and skills of meteorological trainers, contributing to improved forecasting.
Candidates should either be instructors in satellite meteorology, operational forecasters or satellite data users, with the ability to pass on skills acquired at the course to other operational staff.
The course is intended primarily for participants from Africa nominated by their Permanent Representatives with WMO. Depending on the seat availability, additional online participants can be accepted.
Application deadline: extended to 30 June 2018 .
