These free certifications provide participants with an opportunity to become a certified Game, Fish and parks instructor in one of our 5 certified content areas.
- Traditional HuntSAFE: Members of the public with an interest in teaching all ages of novice hunters and recreational shooters can become traditional HuntSAFE instructors. Once certified, instructors must work collaboratively with local Conservation Officers to provide in-person instruction. Traditional HuntSAFE instructors can also provide support during field day opportunities and HuntSAFe in the Schools classes occurring within the school district in order to maintain their certifications.
HuntSAFE in the Schools: School district employees (Phy. Ed., science, conservation etc... teacher) certified in HuntSAFE in the Schools are able to offer the HuntSAFE curriculum to students grades 6-12 during the school day. Class standards align with curriculum requirements and provide students with a unique opportunity to satisfy their HuntSAFE certification without the competition of after-school activities.
- This is an excellent opportunity for scholastic shooting sports coaches who require their participants to be HuntSAFE certified to participate on the team.
