Free #OKwx training offered #tweko

The spring 2013 OK-First class schedule has been launched and we are now taking applications for all classes! You can find the best class for you at the following link:

For all of our current OK-First certified and assistant participants, we strongly encourage you to apply to one of our 7 re-certification classes, all of which will focus 100% on dual-polarization radar. Even if you took a re-certification class as recently as spring 2012, taking a spring 2013 re-certification class will help you make use of the new dual-pol data that is now fully operational across Oklahoma as of mid October (and the entire region will be done by mid April).

As a reminder, to keep OK-First access each agency's Certified Participant is required to attend re-certification training at least once every 18 months. While I don't like doing it, we do put accounts on probation and de-activate them when this requirement is not met.

And as final piece of news to share - the Mesonet/OK-First team is currently in the process of completely re-designing the OK-First website. The new site will not be ready until approximately next summer, but we are putting a lot of work into designing a brand new data area (that can function on different devices), new training area, and building a capability to eventually offer some online OK-First classes. Stay tuned for that!

Please share this message with anyone in your office or anyone new to OK-First who you think might be interested in the training and data access.
