What is Storm Spotter Training?

Storm Spotter Training is a class offered through the National Weather Service (NWS) in partnership with the City of Arvada. The spotter program is an essential part of the NWS' warning process. The training provides you with information on how to safely report severe weather and be "eyes on the sky" for the NWS. During the training, you will learn about thunderstorms and cloud features that could be threatening to our community. The class lasts approximately 2.5 hours.

Who is Eligible?

  • Anyone with an interest in public service and access to communication can participate.
  • Because of the complexity of severe thunderstorms and the potential dangers involved, storm spotting is recommended for adults (18 yrs or older). High school and middle school students are welcome to attend the classes with a parent or other adult.

How Can I Sign Up?

We appreciate your interest and will post future class dates here as they become available.
