Online Course + Field Day Hunter Education Course

The Online course + Field Day is composed of two parts. Each student will study the course material, take chapter reviews, and complete a written test. After successfully passing the test, you must attend an in-person Field Day. During the Field day each student will be required to complete a field course and a live-fire proficiency shoot. It is only after completion of both parts of the course that you will receive your hunter education certification.

There are a few EASY steps to enroll in the Online course + Field Day.

  1. To complete the online portion of the hunter education course, you will need a device with internet access.
  2. Check the online field day course schedule to ensure that one of the field days fits into your schedule before committing to an online course. The link to the field day schedule is at the bottom of this page.
  3. Study the material online in "Today's Hunter in Alaska" and then complete the chapter review questions. Re-study any material you may have answered incorrectly.
  4. When you have studied all the chapters, take the practice test as many times as you like-(free of charge) to ensure you've mastered the course material. A different set of questions is presented each time you take the practice test.
  5. To become eligible for admittance to the mandatory Field Day, take the 50-question multiple-choice written exam. There is a $19.95 charge for the online course. This fee is collected after you pass. A score of 80% is required for passing the test.
  6. Upon passing the online written test, you will receive your official Hunter Education Field Day Qualifier Certificate, which contains your Field Day Qualifier number. You will be required to present a printed copy or an electronic copy of this when you attend your class. After a one to three day waiting period, you will receive an email informing you that you can sign up online for a Field Day event in your area of Alaska. You must wait to receive this notification email before you can sign up. You will need your Field Day Qualifier Number to sign up. The Field Day will be administered by certified volunteer instructors and will include a short review of key safety issues and Alaska specific regulations, a firearms handling exercise with non-functioning firearms, a field course, and a required shooting proficiency.
  7. The student must successfully complete the online test, attend the field day, and complete the shooting proficiency to be certified. Students who fail the proficiency shoot and the reshoots must re-register online to attend a field day on another date. Students completing the online course do not need to re-take the online course and repay as their field day qualifier certificate is valid for 365 days after their initial online course completion date.
