CTEMPS offers 1-day, 2-day and week-long courses on distributed temperature sensing, wireless autonomous sensing, and unmanned aerial systems. In addition, researchers and their students are welcome to visit the University of Nevada, Reno and the Oregon State University for "hands-on" training prior to instrument delivery. For announcements on upcoming short courses, see the Short Course Schedule below. To inquire or arrange a campus visit, please contact Scott Tyler or John Selker.
