PWSCC is hosting an Alaska Department of Fish & Game General Hunter Education certification course from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on November 13-14 and a half-day on Saturday, November 15.
This certification is required for all hunters born after January 1, 1986, who wish to hunt in Alaska. Students are required to register and complete a workbook prior to class. Cost is $10.00. Students must attend all three days. Class is limited to 20 students. Registration and workbook packets can be picked up at the Student Services Help Desk. This workbook must be completed before the start of the course; come into the college and register and pick up your materials as soon as possible while supplies last.
This class is also beneficial for anyone who wants to learn about firearm safety. With the large percentage of households in Alaska that own firearms, it is good to know how to safely handle a firearm. The class will perform live fire at the range on Saturday.
The class will be instructed by Alaska State Trooper Tony Beck, retired UC Customs Officer and avid outdoorsman Dave Kueber, and PWSCC’s Director of Administrative Services, Steve Shiell, who is the ADF&G HIT Lead Instructor.
This certification is recognized by all 50 US states, all ten Canadian provinces, and several other nations. For more information, you can contact Steve Shiell through our Help Desk at 907-834-1600.
