Testimonials

Individuals and organisations support the RMet and CMet schemes. This includes the Met Office, the Royal Navy and other organisations committed to Continuing Professional Development. You can view a register of both Registered Meteorologists and Chartered Meteorologists.

Paul Gundersen, CMet

Deputy Chief Forecaster, Met Office

Successfully acquiring CMet accreditation represented a huge personal milestone – one that will doubtless benefit my career.


 

Helen Roberts, RMet

Senior Operational Meteorologist, Met Office 

Being a registered meteorologist provides an ideal springboard to apply for the title of Chartered Meteorologist and cement yourself within the echelons of the profession. Needless to say, the criteria are tougher, but as you progress with your career, then this option will become less daunting with time.

Steven Keates, RMet

Media Advisor, Marine Meteorologist and Commercial Team Leader, Met Office

One thing that being a registered meteorologist really drums home is the importance of continuous professional development (CPD). Regardless of your role, or level of experience, keeping your skills current and up to date is highly important. Being part of the Royal Meteorological Society provides many opportunities to do this, as well as a way of logging your achievements.


Paul Knightly, RMet

Forecast Manager UK, MeteoGroup

From a manager’s perspective, RMetS qualifications and accreditation schemes are valued inputs to MeteoGroup’s defined career structure. Members of my meteorological team benefit from membership through professional integrity as well as a clear promotional pathway. Additionally, personal development and objectives can be measured through the Society’s continuing professional development (CPD) tools.
 


Becky Venton CMet

Senior International Development Manager, Met Office

Within my role in International Development and working with National Meteorological Services in Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda, being recognised as a CMet has been an important addition to my CV, giving a level of professional credibility that overseas partners expect from the Met Office.
