Online Course and Follow-Up Class


This is a 2 component course. Students must complete an Online Course prior to attending a Follow-Up Class. The Follow-Up is a review only of what the student has learned online.

STOP All students are required to obtain a California Get Outdoors ID (GO ID) prior to registering for California Hunter Education courses. If you are a previous CDFW license holder (i.e. Fishing), your GO ID is printed on the license above your name.

Show additional information

The on-line course in itself will not get you a valid hunter education certificate. Once you have completed one of the on-line courses, you will still need to attend a 4 hour follow-up class with a certified Hunter Education Instructor. Young children may find the course demanding, due to the limited interaction with an instructor. Please contact the Instructor directly for help deciding whether your child is old enough. The course is available by request in hardcopy form for individuals without computer or internet access.
