The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering free hunter safety courses in Palm Beach County.

An Internet completion course field day will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Everglades Youth Conservation Camp, 12100 Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, West Palm Beach. Participants are encouraged to use a map to access Everglades Youth Conservation Camp because GPS will not correctly navigate to this location.

Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.

A traditional hunter safety course also will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 3 and 4 at the Everglades Youth Conservation Camp.  Students are not required to provide any documents from the Internet for this course. An adult must accompany children under the age of 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.

Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.

People interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at or by calling the FWC’s South Region Office at 561-625-5122.
