ECMWF has an extensive education and training programme to assist Member States and Co-operating States in the training of scientists in numerical weather forecasting, and in making use of the ECMWF forecast products.
Our advanced training courses in numerical weather prediction (NWP) will give participants an understanding of the underpinning science as well as current research developments. These courses are aimed at scientists working with NWP systems.
The "Use and interpretation of ECMWF products" courses focus on the operational aspects of the ECMWF forecasting system. Their aim is to increase the participant's ability to examine and assess ECMWF output products. It is directed towards those who are (or will be) using ECMWF products either directly as forecasting staff or in research and development work.
Software packages and applications
These courses provide a background on software packages and applications used in the operational production and visualisation of numerical weather predictions. The objective is to familiarise participants with the packages and applications.
