Metadata is integral to data management and data archive activities. The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) provides free metadata training to help data providers and data managers accomplish the goal of providing discovery-level, access-level and understanding-level metadata for their geospatial and environmental data.

NCEI's metadata training focus is on the development of ISO 19115-2 and related standards in accordance with NOAA's Data Documentation Directive. Other metadata topics can be addressed as needed. An updated schedule of available free training can be found here:
