Class Schedules

The Hunter Information & Training Program offers two basic types of classes for our three certification courses; Basic Hunter Education, Bowhunter Certification and Muzzleloader Certification.

  1. Traditional or Independent Study
  2. Online

Traditional and Independent Study

Traditional and Independent Study classes are taught entirely in person both in the classroom and during required Field Day activities. These classes require the student to sign up and pay in person at a Fish and Game office. You cannot sign up online for any of these courses.

Online courses

Online courses involve two parts: Part one requires the student to complete the study and testing of “Today’s Hunter in Alaska,” “Today’s Bowhunter,” or “Today’s Muzzleloader Hunter” depending on which certification course is being attempted. This portion of study will be accomplished online at home on the student’s computer. Part two is a mandatory field day and proficiency shoot that the student must attend and successfully complete in order to be certified.

Due to the student information data transfer schedule from our out of state provider, you will need to wait three working days from the time you complete your online test before you can sign up for a field day.

PLEASE NOTE: You may NOT mix and match the traditional/independent study courses with the online courses. They are NOT interchangeable.
