ARESĀ® training is defined comprehensively in the ARES Standardized Training Plan Taskbook located in multiple formats here.

Note that emergency deployment by the OEM requires completion of FEMA IS-100, IS-200, IS-700, and IS-800. Those online courses can be found here. Please provide copies of certificates earned to the Maury County EC.

Note also that field reports submitted to the NWS require observers to complete storm spotter training. Training is available locally in person as needed. As an alternative, there may be other sessions scheduled in middle TN by the Nashville office and there is self-paced online training also available. Check this website for those options.
