Statistics / comments from the survey will allow SHyMet (and VISIT) to determine what training is needed the most and be able to develop a SHyMet course that suits the needs of forecasters.
SHyMet Metrics (through November 2006):
95 total NOAA/NWS employees/participants have registered here at CIRA (2 registered since November 1, 2006, 19 since July 1, 2006 – when SHyMet online started).
14 total Non-NOAA participants have registered here at CIRA (1 registered since November 1, 2006).
52 of the 95 (55%) individuals registered here at CIRA have completed the NOAA version of SHyMet since April 1, 2006 (10 of the 19 that have signed up for SHyMet since July 1, 2006 – all online version - have completed SHyMet. 2 have completed SHyMet since November 1, 2006 – one of these is included in the 10 that have finished the online version since July 1, 2006).
