The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will
host a free hunter safety course on June 23-25 and July 10 in
Collier and Charlotte counties. People seeking certification must
attend all four days.
Students will learn about hunting laws, hunter
ethics/responsibility and safe gun handling, among other topics,
before taking the final test. The course also includes live-firing
instruction on a shooting range.
The locations and times for these classes will be given to those
who register in advance by calling the FWC's South Region office at

course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other
states and Canadian provinces.
