From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Located in Kansas City, Missouri, the National Weather Service Training Center (NWSTC) is an integral component of the National Weather Service Mission by providing training to NOAA/NWS employees in the areas of equipment (operations, maintenance and repair), management, meteorology, hydrology, systems support, and related activities. NWSTC's staff develop and deliver courses in a number of formats including residence classes and workshops, web-based and computer-based self-study tutorials, teletraining (interactive web delivery), and work aides.

In addition, NWSTC staff provides consulting services, research and development, technical and operational documentation assistance, and system deployment support.Also, the NWSTC Leadership Academy offers leadership training to all federal agencies.

NWSTC's goal is to teach job-specific and practical skills; integrate systems so the whole, instead of individual parts of the problem can be recognized; emulate the NWS working field environment; and provide students the ability to work and experiment with concepts or equipment as part of learning.

NWSTC's Mission is to align the training of NOAA/NWS employees with the advancement of science and technology for NOAA to earn the public's trust and perform with service-based excellence.
