Florida FWC Hunter Safety Course
“Future and current hunters interested in receiving their Hunter Safety Certification are invited to participate in a free, two-part online and skills day Hunter Safety Course. The Skills Day portion of the Hunter Safety Course is intended to be taken after students complete their course. Students attend an in-person class, covering hunter safety, laws and ethics. Participants will then head to the range for the live-fire session, demonstrating safe firearms understanding and handling. Certification can only be achieved through completion of both the online and skills day portions of the Hunter Safety Program.”
The FWC Hunter Safety Course is online and open to the public.
