Advancing knowledge

Providing training is an essential part of what we do – enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's products and data and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.

Our extensive learning programme covers numerical weather prediction and the use of the Centre’s computer facilities and forecast products. It is primarily intended for scientists and forecast users based in our Member and Co-operating States.
