UPDATED JULY 2017 —
Tim Vasquez offers personalized training via Skype video chat (link to Skype download). This allows students to get all the benefits of the 100+ Forecast School courses we have done, and allows you to ask questions, show charts, and go over products.
You may choose a structured or an unstructured format, and change your preferences at any time during training. With structured courses you get one of the Forecast School lessons that were conducted in Norman, Oklahoma between 2001 and 2013, and you may request specific elements of that course. Unstructured lessons draw from current weather or historical weather situations, and we go over the weather using dozens of available tools. Unstructured lessons are the most popular with our Skype students.
The rates are as follows:
Half hour - $65 — Purchase
One hour - $95 — Purchase
Four hours - $350 — Purchase
Purchased time does not need to be used all at once, and may be split across multiple times or dates. Forecast School via Skype is considered a private session and may not be posted online or distributed.
Training sessions are generally available 7 days a week, afternoons and evenings between 11 am and midnight Central time, except for 7 pm to 9 pm which is not available. At least 24 - 48 hours notice is normally required, and available time slots will vary, but we will work with you to find a time that is mutually acceptable. To schedule training time, purchase a block of training time above and then contact Tim Vasquez at the email address below.
For no-shows we will allow the time to be rescheduled up to three times.
We normally reply within 24-48 hours unless there is a heavy workload.
