Education and Training Publications

Below are the publications released by the Education and Training (ETR) Office. Links to other WMO Publications available in electronic format here. Please check these URLs for updated information on a regular basis.


Guide to the Management and Operation of WMO Regional Training Centres and Other Training Institutions (WMO-No. 1169)

This publication responds to the recommendations made in the review of the future roles and operation of RTCs, which was carried out by the Executive Council Panel of Experts on Education and Training from 2012 to 2014. The review and recommendations were approved by the WMO Executive Council at its sixty-sixth session in 2014. The review underlined the importance and usefulness of the RTCs to WMO Members. However, it also noted that, for Members to get even more value from such centres, the criteria for designation and reconfirmation of RTCs needed to be improved and that Directors of RTCs would benefit from a handbook that brought the key information on running an RTC together in one publication. The handbook would also be of value to organizations that either use or are considering using RTCs to train their staff.

Available in English

Practicing forecasters reading this document should have ready access to more involved texts on the various subjects
