Course description

About the Level 3 Meteorology Certificate

Meteorology is defined as the science of the atmosphere. Meteorologists study atmospheric phenomena and the effect that the atmosphere has on our weather. By using a number of tools – such as thermometers, barometers and anemometers – meteorologists are able to collect information about the weather and use these to predict the forecast.

This Level 3 distance learning course offers Stonebridge College students a fascinating insight in to the world of meteorology. The engaging e-learning material has been spread over seven individual modules and should take around 110 hours to complete. During the course of their studies, students will learn about everything from the atmosphere and weather patterns to climate change.
