Over the past 15 years, training for satellite matters for forecasters has been used to supplement gaps in education and as means to present new and improved operational products. Essentially, this has not changed. A training paradigm can be explained as an accepted means to develop and deliver training. Over the past 15 years, technology and budget have dramatically influenced how training has been delivered to national weather service forecasters, both nationally and internationally. In the same period of time, technology has also spurred on significant advances in research and advocated for faster transitions of “Research to Operations”. Through education and training, are we addressing basic, advanced, and experienced user needs? Reflecting on the past 15 years of experience from the US and from a WMO perspective, what training and education should be reemphasized and what areas can benefit from improvement? There are many areas to consider and we will offer a few.
