Alaska’s Hunter Safety Education Program
Formal hunter education efforts began in the late 1940s and later expanded nationwide until it is now required almost everywhere, including Alaska. Since the implementation of education, there has been a tremendous decline in hunting-related incidents across the country.
By completing and passing this Alaska-approved online hunting license course, you will have satisfied the educational requirement for Alaska.

Get Safe. Get Certified. It’s the Law!
Who Needs the Certificate?
If you are younger than 16 years old or you were born after January 1, 1986, and are 16 years old or older, you must successfully complete a certified Basic Hunter Education course.
Good in Other States
All states and provinces that have mandatory hunter education requirements will accept Alaska Hunter Education certifications. Likewise, Alaska will accept Hunter Education certifications that are issued by other states and provinces that meet official IHEA requirements. (This is known as “reciprocity.”)
Why Hunter Education?
Since states have begun requiring hunter education, over the last 30 years hunting incidents have drastically decreased, while the number of hunters has increased. Today, hunting is one of the safest outdoor activities you can enjoy.
Minimum Age There are no minimum age requirements to take the Alaska Hunter’s Ed Course.
