I am pleased to let you know I’ve earned the American Meteorological Society’s distinction of Certified Broadcast Meteorologist. I hold CBM #753.
From the American Meteorological Society’s website:
To earn the CBM, broadcasters must hold a degree in meteorology or equivalent from an accredited college or university, pass a rigorous written examination, and have their on-air work reviewed by a Board of examiners to assess graphical content, explanation, and presentation skills. In addition to the initial educational and test requirements, CBMs must earn 28 professional development points every five years in order to maintain their certification.
