Indiana Trapper Education
Indiana Trapper Education Courses will provide instruction in the areas of the history and benefits of trapping, trapper ethics and responsibility, choosing and preparing equipment, types of furbearers, and making sets.
About the Class
Trapper Education classes are offered by knowledgeable and dedicated volunteer instructors and Indiana Conservation Officers.
The Classroom Course must include a minimum of 6 hours of instruction. Most classes offered are 1 to 3 sessions. In order to be certified, students must attend the entire class including all sessions.
We do not prevent attendance based on age; however:
- Any child under 11 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian every session.
- At the first session, everyone must give the instructor a signed, completed Liability Release Form (download, print, and sign). If the student is under the age of 18, the form must be signed by the parent or guardian.
