Update 5 January 2022: Due to the recent developments of COVID-19, the courses until end of March 2022 will be held virtually; please check the individual course pages.

We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 travel situation and will adjust and adapt the format of the courses if necessary.

Our training courses are highly interactive and in order to maintain quality teaching and a good participant/teacher ratio, the number of attendees will remain the same for remote and face-to-face courses.

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.
