Improving human performance for enhanced decision support services is done through collaborative training and education. ETCD is accomplished through collaboration between operational hydrologists/meteorologists, scientists and academic staff with expertise across a wide range of environmental, educational and social sciences. These activities engage operational hydrologists/meteorologists, researchers, instructors and students in applied training and simulation exercises which are pivotal to the operational climate, water and weather communities. The goal of improving performance is achieved through a Competency-based education and training program. By meeting the goal of ETCD, forecasts and warnings of environmental hazards will be improved.
