Becoming certified as a Hunter Education Instructor is a great way to insure the continuation of Kentucky's hunting tradition. Every year over 15,000 Kentucky citizens learn about safe and ethical hunting by participating in the ten (10) hour Kentucky Hunter Education Course.
On an average year from 800 to 1,000 Kentucky Hunter Education Instructors team up to teach around 400 individual courses all over the state. Subject matter for a Hunter Education course includes but is not limited to training in firearms, ammunition, first aid, survival in the outdoors, wildlife identification and management, and basic bowhunting. Students participate in classroom sessions and live fire field training with guns and archery tackle.
The twelve (12) hour Hunter Education Instructor Course will prepare participants to take an active part in this program. The content of a typical instructor course includes Kentucky Hunter Education Policies and Procedures, practice teaching of classroom and range subjects, use of audio visual equipment, and a 100 question written test. You must have completed the ten (10) hour student course prior to taking the Instructor Course.
The program can always use a few more good men and women who are interested in insuring a future for hunting and shooting sports.
