Washington Traditional Classroom Course
Hunter education classes focus on three broad topical areas:
- Firearms and outdoor safety;
- Wildlife management; and,
- Hunter responsibility.
IMPORTANT Because of noise and recoil considerations, women who are or may be pregnant may wish to consult a physician before participating in or being in close proximity to live-fire activities.
Successful students must pass a written test, demonstrate safe firearm handling skills, and have a positive attitude.
There is no minimum age required to enroll in hunter education, but instructors may require a parent or guardian to attend all classes if students are under 12 years of age.
PLEASE NOTE Your registration is not complete until you receive a confirmation.
