Our Guest WeatherBrain for episode 265 is Dr. John Ogren. Dr. Ogren is Director of the National Weather Service Training Center located in Kansas City, MO. As an integral component of mission support, the NOAA/NWS Training Center provides training to NOAA/NWS employees in the areas of management, meteorology, hydrology, equipment maintenance, systems support, and related activities.

Training Center staff develop and deliver courses in a number of formats including residence classes and workshops, web-based and computer-based self-study tutorials, teletraining (interactive web delivery), and work aides. In addition NWSTC staff provide consulting services, research and development, technical and operational documentation assistance, and system deployment support.
