METplus Training Series



The METplus team is launching a Tutorial Series on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 9am MST/11am EST/1600 UTC.  Participants can join METplus trainers weekly for virtual one-hour sessions where background presentations by subject matter experts will be woven through hands-on training. 

It is anticipated that the series will last approximately 16 weeks, with breaks for the holidays and the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting. The series will start with the basics of setting up, configuring, and running METplus, then move onto running the core tools, and eventually more advanced topics.  Please refer to the Agenda page for the topics that will be covered in the first 8 weeks.  The schedule for the second 8 weeks will be released in January.

REGISTRATION to participate in the weekly meetings IS NOW CLOSED.  You may add your name to our waitlist, in case a spot opens, and to also receive updates throughout the series. Google Meet will be used for the live sessions and they will be recorded and made available on the METplus Training website. The recorded sessions will be available to everyone, so even if you did not get registered for the live sessions, you may still follow along.  Also, if you miss a week, you can catch up by watching the recorded sessions.

The following platforms will be supported for hands-on training:

  • NOAA HPC Hera
  • NOAA HPC Jet
  • Amazon Web Services (credentials provided if needed) 
  • Cheyenne

You may participate in the hands-on training using your local linux servers or HPCs, but you will be responsible for installing METplus (see videos), as well as grabbing the online tutorial data and setting up for the training (see videos).  The exception to your needing to install and stage the tutorial data is listed on the Existing Builds page on the METplus website. The METplus team will not be able to help with troubleshooting on individual installs or other existing builds during the live sessions.  Finally, you may also participate in the sessions without stepping through the tutorial material.
