Classes are taught by DNR certified volunteers in their local communities, typically in the spring and early fall. To become certified, students attend both classroom and field instruction sessions. The course provides students with basic safe firearms handling skills, wildlife identification, outdoor skills, and responsibilities that accompany hunting and firearms use.
