** 2020 Ingham County Skywarn Training Canceled **

The Grand Rapids National Weather Service (GRR NWS) has decided to cancel all remaining Skywarn trainings, including our training that was scheduled for April 11th. They ask for your understanding as the GRR NWS as they work to reduce the riso fr the public and their staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.

There is online training that can be accessed at the following website: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_course.php?id=23

You can take this course in the place of the in person Skywarn training that has been canceled. This course will cover the same topics and will provide a certificate that you can put your name (and callsign) in for you to save and print.

We recommend anyone who needs to take Skywarn training to take this course. People who need to take this course include new Skywarn participants and those whose Skywarn certification is expiring / expired. Once you have taken this training enter your name (and callsign if you have one), and save a copy for yourself and print the certificate off for your records.
