For more information about this requirement, click here.
INSTRUCTOR COURSE: This training is required for those interested in teaching or assisting with the Kentucky Hunter Education (HE) Student Course. The HE Student Course (orange card course) is required prior to attending an Instructor Course. All materials including firearms and ammunition are provided at NO CHARGE. s and ammunition are provided at NO CHARGE.
Important Participants must be at least nine years of age to take the hunter education course.
Following Governor Andy Beshear’s executive order to close in-person services as a way to help protect Kentuckians and state employees from COVID-19, Kentucky Fish and Wildlife has temporarily canceled its group hunter education courses, including live fire range days.
To accommodate those who still need their hunter education certificate before hunting in Kentucky, the department has made it possible to earn the Hunter Education certification by taking the “classroom” portion online here, and submitting a video of the “range” portion.
