For anyone interested in becoming an official NWS spotter, or simply want to learn more about taking weather observations, the NWS provides free spotter training classes. Here is the link that provides the schedule and locations for upcoming classes:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/bou/?n=spot_training

NWS spotters provide near real-time reports of severe weather events, such as snowfall totals, high winds, severe thunderstorms, hail etc... These reports greatly help NWS forecasters as well as provide valuable information to nearby residents.
