ONLINE ONLY CLASSES NOW OFFERED FOR A LIMITED TIME
New York is now going to offer a fully online hunter education course so that students can get certified during this time when we cannot offer in-person courses.
The course will cost $19.95 per person. Right now the course will be available for a limited time, from April 15 through June 30, 2020. By late June, the DEC will make a decision on whether to keep the course open for a longer period of time. Anyone age 11 or older can take the online course and you must be a resident of New York State. Students who successfully complete the course, and pass the final exam, will get a hunter education certificate. Starting Wednesday, the course can be found at https://www.hunter-ed.com/newyork/
