Find a Course

The International Hunter Education Association-USA wants to make it easy for you to find courses. Each state and province has a different system for scheduling and advertising courses. Please go to Instructors/Directory of Administrators for contact information in the state you plan to attend/take a course.

Online Hunter Education Courses

Currently the following "Internet providers" offer online hunter education training throughout North America and provide specific state/provincial information as well. They may not be available in your state or province, so be sure to check with your jurisdiction first, before signing up for a course (go to Instructors/Directory of Administrators for state contact information and web sites).  Taking such courses also may not automatically qualify you as completing hunter education. In most cases, you must also attend a "field day" in a particular state, with a certified hunter education instructor, to complete your training.


There also are several other 'providers' and individual states that provide their own online training that serve individual states, including the IHEA-USA courses at this site.  Go to Instructors/Directory of Administrators for contact information for your state or province.

Field Courses

Field courses are hands-on training sessions provided by hunter education instructors as part of traditional or Internet/Home Study follow-up coursework.  Field courses typically include opportunities for demonstrating skills such as muzzle control, live-firing exercises, skills "trails", ethics and responsibility facilitated discussions, blood trailing, distance estimation, shot placement, shot angles, "shoot/don't shoot" scenarios and much more.  Hands-on field courses are the best form of learning for students and are encouraged regardless of your particular state requirements.
