AMS welcomes short course proposals for virtual or in-person courses at an AMS meeting on a variety of subjects that would be of interest to the weather, water, and climate community. Prior course topics include machine learning, Python, consulting meteorology, forensic meteorology, catastrophe modeling, artificial intelligence applications, to name a few. Python is in demand so don't hesitate to submit a proposal if you are interested in organizing a course on this topic. Short course attendees range from undergraduate students to seasoned professionals so organizers have the option to choose topics for a specific audience. Short course proposals are reviewed by the AMS Board on Continuing Professional Development (BCPD) and are submitted online.
We are currently using GoToTraining as a platform for virtual short courses. Please review our GoToTraining Features and Tutorials to learn about all the options available to you. We plan to offer in-person courses at the 102nd AMS Annual Meeting in January 2022. Below are resources for in-person courses. For additional questions, please contact Kelly Savoie.
