The HIF currently offers three training courses: Basic Electronics and Troubleshooting Instrumentation, Satellite Data Collection Platform Installation and Operation, and QW Probes Installation, Operation, Calibration, and Maintenance. Courses provide lectures and "hands-on" experience.

Our classroom facility features two person workbenches with pedestal stools, individual laptops with wireless capability; a ceiling-mounted screen projector; large white dry-erase boards; and a flat screen television/monitor.

HIF training courses are specifically designed to benefit USGS hydrologic technicians and hydrologists who operate streamgages and other automated hydrologic monitoring stations. Non-USGS personnel who work for federal, state, tribal or local agencies whose job duties include hydrologic monitoring may attend HIF training classes on a space-available basis.
