Welcome to this template course site. Here you will find a suggested curriculum for offering a course on current WMO Marine Meteorological Services guidelines and regulations. The purpose of this course is to help WMO Members improve marine meteorological service delivery by:
- increasing their understanding of the needs of clients (e.g. at sea, at coasts or on lakes) who use marine weather information for protection of property and safety of life at sea;
- guiding the use and implementation of the WMO regulations and service delivery framework outlined in WMO documents relevant to marine and coastal service, especially WMO-No. 471: Guide to Marine Meteorological Services; and
- raising awareness and understanding of the regulations outlined in WMO documents relevant to marine and coastal service, especially WMO-No. 558: Manual on Marine Meteorological Services to effect successful implementation of WMO requirements for marine meteorological services.
The course is designed as a facilitated offering adaptable to online or blended delivery over 7-8 weeks. Course organizers may adapt the activities to address their organizational or regional needs.
