Competency Requirements for Education and Training Providers for Meteorological, Hydrological, and Climate Services
This document sets out a competency framework for personnel involved in training and education.
"MANUAL ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING STANDARDS IN METEOROLOGY AND HYDROLOGY"
This document replaces WMO-NO.258 Vol. 1 on 1 December 2013.
The present publication is intended to facilitate a common understanding of the basic qualifications being required of individuals who are to be recognized either as Meteorologists or as Meteorological Technicians, as defined by World Meteorological Organization (WMO), while also assisting National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in establishing their respective personnel classification systems and training programmes to satisfactorily meet international standards.
"GUIDELINES FOR THE EDUCATION AND TRAINING OF PERSONNEL IN METEOROLOGY AND OPERATIONAL HYDROLOGY"
Prepared under the guidance of the Executive Council Panel of Experts on Education and Training
This completely revised edition consists of two separate Volumes - Volume I: Meteorology and Volume II: Hydrology. It covers two major items: the new classification of personnel and revised curricula for initial qualifications and early specialization in meteorology and hydrology.
* Volume I will no longer be current after 30 November 2013! WMO-No. 258 Vol. 1 is being replaced by WMO-No. 1083 (see above)
WMO-No. 258 (Supplement No. 1)**
"TRAINING AND QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR AERONAUTICAL METEOROLOGICAL PERSONNEL"
Description of previous version: The purpose of this Supplement is to present in a concise and unambiguous manner the WMO requirements for training and qualification of aeronautical meteorological personnel (AMP), and to facilitate the development of specialized syllabi for the initial qualification of those personnel.
** For all information regarding current qualifications and competencies for personnel providing meteorological services to international civil aviation, see http://www.caem.wmo.int/moodle/. Click Regulatory and Reference Material and then log in as Guest.
WMO-No. 258 (Supplement No. 2)
"GUIDELINES FOR CURRICULA IN AGRICULTURAL METEOROLOGY"
Initial formation and specialization of meteorological personnel: Detailed Syllabus Examples
This publication is supplementing Chapters 3 and 4 of the Guidelines for the Education and Training of Personnel in Meteorology and Operational Hydrology, WMO-No. 258, Vol. I Meteorology.
This document is to guide forecasters working for the aviation community. Its intention is to discuss the many and varied phenomena which, unfortunately, can prove hazardous to aviation which lower the safety of air operation and may cause loss of equipment and life. Whilst some forecasting techniques are mentioned, of itself this document is not a forecasting ‘textbook’. It is intended that the reader is familiar with some quite technical terms used in meteorology. Practicing forecasters reading this document should have ready access to more involved texts on the various subjects.
Members Training Requirements, Opportunities and Capabilities in Meteorology and Hydrology, WMO Survey 2006
This publication contains result analysis of the WMO Survey on Member's training requirements and opportunities in meteorology and hydrology, which took place during 2006.

Part-1 - Notes for the Training of Instructors in Meteorology and Operational Hydrology
This publication aims at helping the meteorological and hydrological instructors to update their know-how on teaching methods, strategies and technologies. It will also serve as a guide and reference to both new and experienced instructors.
The Tenth WMO Symposium on Education and Training: Meteorological and Hydrological Education and Training for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
Introduction to climate change: Lecture notes for meteorologists
The compendium provide material on the science of climate change, assuming that students already have the basic understanding of geophysical fluid dynamics and relevant physical processes in the atmosphere. Although designed as training material. it also attempt to respond to the needs for monitoring climate change, to help governing bodies to understand the scientific issues and to provide information to general public. . .
