Courses
Advance Weather Forecasting – 3 Months Course
It course prepares the trainee for a higher professional career in Operational Meteorology through simulations and on-the-job training (OJT). At the end of the course the trainees will be able to demonstrate the requisite competencies for operational forecasters. They will thus be able to; analyze and monitor the weather situation, forecast meteorological phenomena, warn of hazardous phenomena, ensure quality of meteorological information and communicate meteorological information to users
Certificate course in Meteorological Instrumentation – 3 Months
The course equips participants with knowledge and practical skills in the science of measurement as well as care and calibration of meteorological instruments. The students should be able to know the factors for siting the instruments and spacing of instruments and appreciate the principles behind the workings of each instrument and be able to carry out simple maintenance procedures on meteorological instruments.
Certificate Course in Aviation/Aeronautical Meteorology – 4 Months
This programme equips the trainee with skills to make Aeronautical meteorological observations. The trainee will be able to monitor the weather, observe and record meteorological phenomena, ensure quality of system performance and of meteorological information and communicate meteorological information to users. It also enhances participants’ skills in the use of aviation specific codes and practices and broadens their knowledge in diagnosing and forecasting aviation specific phenomena. Upon completion, the participants will be able to analyze and monitor the weather situation, forecast aeronautical meteorological phenomena, warn of hazardous phenomena, understand aviation specific weather codes and messages and ensure quality of meteorological information and communicate meteorological information to users.
Certificate Course in Agro-Meteorology – 5 Months
This course enables the trainee to understand the effect of meteorological and climatic elements and their effects on crops and livestock production. The trainee will be able to employ meteorological information to improve agricultural products and services.

Certificate course in Hydrometeorology -4 Months
This course equips the trainee to understand the components of the water cycle and its applications in the managements of water resources.
Certificate Course in Climatology – 4 Months
This training course equips participants with knowledge in application of climatology in various specialized fields. Participants will also be appraised on topical developments in climate related issues like climate change. It also improves the trainee’s technical and operational skills in data management practice and its application at work. The trainee will also be able to analyse and interpret climatic data for specific decision making. At the end of this course the trainee will also appreciate the geographical characteristics of their area

Certificate Course in Data Processing – 4 Months
Data Processing Course improves technical and operational skills of trainees in data management practices, quality control and analysis for immediate application at work.
Basic Observer Course – 6 Months
Basic Observer Course equips the trainee with skills to make Aeronautical meteorological and other operational observations. The trainee will be able to monitor the weather, observe and record meteorological phenomena, code the basic meteorological messages like, METAR, SPECI, SYNOP and ensure quality of system performance and of meteorological information and communicate meteorological information to users.
Basic Training Courses for supporting staff
This course aims at introducing the staff of Nigerian Meteorological Agency without meteorological background but working with Agency to the basics of meteorology the understanding of which is expected to improve their efficiency and prompt responses in their daily operational activities.
Climate Change Studies
This course equips the participants with knowledge and skills in climate/ climate change detection and attribution, mitigation, adaptation, and related environmental issues. Participants will also be equipped with skills to spur environmentally sustainable socio-economic development.
Public Weather Presentation Course – 2 Months
This course will equip participants with skills that will enable them to make weather presentations through the electronic and print media, radio and TV more effectively.
