Meets IHEA-USA Standards

This Texas hunter-ed.com online hunting education course was developed in accordance with the standards set forth by the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA-USA) and meets the requirements of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department hunter safety mandate.

About the Standards

In 1999, IHEA-USA adopted a set of performance guidelines for basic hunter education courses. These standards have been used internationally by hunter education administrators to evaluate minimum core content in hunter education courses. Industry partners including Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and hunter-ed.com have used the revised standards to develop new student manuals and alternative delivery methods for hunter education (IHEA-USA Standards website).
