While several National Weather Service offices across the country are cancelling their spring spotter training classes, local offices plan on continuing as scheduled. Offices cancelling classes include, but aren't limited to Quad Cities IA, Portland OR, and Wilmington OH.
For the Eau Claire area, the big class day is March 31, when classes are scheduled in Altoona, Eau Claire, and Mondovi. Again, plans right now are for them to continue, but if fears continue to grow and those get canceled, you still have options.
Thursday, March 12 will have two classes up in Barron that are going on as scheduled. This is intended, of course, for those in Barron County, but since this won't be cancelled you might want to consider a drive there.
In addition, the National Weather Service in La Crosse is hosting two online virtual training classes, which they do every year. Those will be on March 19 at 10 a.m. and April 21 at 7 p.m. You do need to register for the online classes, and you can do that by clicking on the date in the previous sentence.

The National Weather Service La Crosse office said they are proceeding with them, but continue to monitor the situation and will update the public if anything changes.
NWS Twin Cities also said they will hold them unless the host location or higher-ups in the NWS make the decision.
