The Virtual Laboratory for Training and Education in Satellite Meteorology (VLab) was established by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) in 2003. The activities here are sponsored by NOAA, the US satellite operator.

The Regional Meteorological Training Centers of Excellence (RMTCoE) are specialized satellite applications training centers designated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). CIRA has interacted with the RMTCoE in Costa Rica and Barbados since 1996 and with the newer RMTCoE in Brazil and Argentina since 2006.
