Hunter Education Instructor Training Offered
WATERBURT, VT –There is no more powerful way to give back to what you love than with a gift of your time. If you love to hunt in Vermont, there are few better ways of giving your time than becoming a volunteer hunter education instructor.
The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department Hunter Education program has scheduled a New Hunter Education Instructor Training for Saturday, March 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Waterbury State Office Complex.
The application process includes providing personal references and a criminal history background check. You can still take the instructor course if the background check has not been completed, but you will not be certified until passing it.
More than 5,000 future hunters are educated by Vermont’s volunteer Certified Instructors yearly. Classes can be arranged to fit the instructor’s schedule, and all materials required are supplied free of charge by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
Becoming a Hunter Education Instructor takes commitment. But as an instructor you are helping to pass on a hunting heritage that adds to Vermont’s quality of life. Through the efforts of our volunteers, hunting is safe and getting safer.
