This lesson takes learners through a day in the life of a NWS WFO Aviation Focal Point. Learners will encounter activities they would have to perform within the role, including fielding calls from partners and mentoring colleagues. Through interactive scenarios, learners will be provided practice with the Categorical Amendment Criteria (CAC) process, identifying how it helps forecasts with aviation decision support. They will also connect CAC to monitoring elements of AvnFPS TAF software. Throughout the lesson they will make decisions about how to communicate with partners regarding decision support issues and practice mentoring team members who are encountering aviation-related performance issues.
