How the Typical State Hunting Course Works

Learning: Hunting Safety

To help you become a better informed and safer hunter, each course is broken down into 9 easy-to-understand units that you can complete at your own pace:

  • Unit 1 – Introduction to Hunter Education
  • Unit 2 – Know Your Firearm Equipment
  • Unit 3 – Basic Shooting Skills
  • Unit 4 – Basic Hunting Skills
  • Unit 5 – Primitive Hunting Equipment and Techniques
  • Unit 6 – Be a Safe Hunter
  • Unit 7 – Be a Responsible and Ethical Hunter
  • Unit 8 – Preparation and Survival Skills
  • Unit 9 – Understanding Wildlife

Assessment: Unit Quizzes

As you go through the course, you’ll take a quiz at the end of each unit to determine how well you’re understanding the hunter safety topics.

Each unit quiz requires a passing score determined by your state before you’re allowed on to the next unit.

If you don’t pass a unit quiz, don’t worry. You’ll just go back and study the unit and then try the quiz again.

Mastery: Course Completion

When you complete all units, you’ll then move on to the final steps in the certification process as mandated by your state. In most cases this is in the form of a final exam covering all the course material.

You’ll have the choice to proceed directly to the online Final Exam, or you may first take a practice exam. Both the practice exam and the Final Exam cover all the course material and will assess your knowledge of hunting safely in your state.
