Hunter education

OLYMPIA — Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife hunter education classes are available.

“Summer is a great time to enroll in hunter education class because, as fall hunting seasons draw near, seats in these courses fill quickly,” said David Whipple, WDFW hunter education section manager. “Beat the fall rush and sign up today, especially before school and related activities begin.”

WDFW offers both traditional and online options to complete the hunter education requirement. The traditional classroom experience includes direct person-to-person instruction from certified volunteer instructors. This format is especially beneficial to younger students, as well as those seeking more time with highly qualified instructors.

WDFW schedules classes statewide, but due to instructor and facility availability, challenges may arise in locating a class.

The online course offers the same content and can be completed according to the student’s schedule. Students ages 17 and younger who take the online course are required to complete an in-person field skills evaluation led by certified instructors.

As hunting season approaches, field skills evaluation classes can fill quickly. Students 18 and older can complete the online course, which includes a virtual field day, to become certified.

To learn about hunter education requirements or find a course, people can visit the WDFW hunter education webpage at
