Only at Western
Western Wyoming Community College is excited to announce the availability of more Hunter Education Courses in an effort to meet the public demand. There are several sessions available throughout July and August as well as a Hunter Education Internet Field Day course which allows an individual to complete the coursework online and demonstrate their competency during a field day.
WWCC Community Education Specialist, Connie Stonebraker explains, “For many years there has been a shortage of instructors and it has been difficult to meet the demand for the course. It is really exciting to be able to offer more course sections and the online option provides an alternative for those needing the course but do not have an accommodating schedule.”
The in-class Hunter Education courses are taught by certified instructors and students must attend all class sessions or complete all course material and pass an exam to receive their certificates. An adult must accompany children under 16 years of age. The Hunter Education Internet Field Day was designed for working adults. For individuals to receive their Hunter Education card they must first go to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website and complete the online section of the class. After printing all the quizzes and bringing these to the Internet Field Day course, students will take an entry quiz to be admitted to the class. After passing entry quiz, individuals will be able to complete the course and take the final exam.
Completion of either course will entitle the student to receive the Hunter Education Certification. Under Wyoming Law, no person born on or after January 1, 1966, may take any wildlife by the use of firearms on land other than that of his own family, unless the person possesses or can demonstrate they have obtained a certificate of competency and safety in the use and handling of firearms.
Pre-registration required is for all courses and there are applicable course fees associated with each section. For more information, please call the WWCC Community Education office at 307-872-1323 or go to www.wwcc.wy.edu/comm_svs.
