In the Classroom
How to Prepare
Though it varies by instructor and location, most classes take place over two days. Seating is often limited, so be sure to call to confirm availability and/or register.
Study materials will be provided in the class, but you will need to bring a pencil or pen and a highlighter.
What to expect in class
Your instructor will cover a range of topics, from conservation, safety, and ethics to the proper handling of shotguns, handguns, bowhunting gear, and more. You should not bring firearms or archery equipment to class - all necessary equipment will be provided.
Once you've completed the course work, you will be given a 100-question test which includes a mix of multiple choice, matching, and true/false questions. A student must score 80% or higher on the test to pass and obtain certification.
