Preview: INFER Forecaster Training Program
The INFER Forecaster Training Program designed by our partners at Pytho seeks to improve forecaster's critical thinking and reasoning skills. The program will also provide a mechanism for participants to attain status as they advance through the coursework.
The training, currently under development, is split into four levels. Achieving each level will require a combination of training, practice, and at the higher levels, forecasting accuracy. The first two levels can be completed at your own pace and all training will likely be open source and online. At the higher levels, you will likely need to take part in a live experience that will be offered periodically. Any practice or performance will be tracked on the INFER platform and you will soon see the level you're at on your profile, which can then be shared with others.
Here is the program:

|Power of 10||Digital Hygiene||Reasoning Fundamentals||Basic Knowledge Quiz 1||Basic Knowledge Quiz 2|
