Training Plan for 2014


The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is one (1) of the attached agencies of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) under its Scientific and Technical Services Institutes. It is mandated to “provide protection against natural calamities and utilize scientific knowledge as an effective instrument to insure the safety, well being and economic security of all the people, and for the promotion of national progress.”


PAGASA was designated as the Regional Meteorological Training Centre (RMTC) for the South West Pacific (Region V) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1968 with the Institute of Meteorology, now the Research and Development and Training Division (RDTD) as its “Training Component”. In 1978, the Department of Meteorology (DMO), now the Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology (IESM), University of the Philippines(UP) was added as its “University Component.”


The RDTD, the training, research and astronomy arm of PAGASA conducts regular training courses on Meteorology, Hydrology, Meteorological Observations and other specialized technical courses. The Meteorologists Training Course (MTC) has the compulsory topics in the atmospheric science, which include physical meteorology, dynamic meteorology, synoptic meteorology and climatology. It also contains includes most of the elective fields of specialization (aeronautical and agricultural meteorology, weather forecasting, etc.) This is in accordance with the guidelines for the Education and Training Personnel in Meteorology and Operational Hydrology (WMO- No. 258, 4th edition) and the Manual on the Implementation of Education and Training Standards in Meteorology and Hydrology (WMO-No. 1083). This course usually requires one academic year.


The Hydrologists Training Course (HTC) is also in accordance with the guidelines of WMO-No. 258 4th Edition and the Manual on the Implementation of Education and Training Standards in Meteorology and Hydrology (WMO-No. 1083). This course also requires one academic year. On the other hand, the Meteorological Technicians Training Course (MTTC) follows the guidelines as provided in the WMO-No 258 4th Edition.
