Because students complete the hunter education study requirements at home, the Field Day component can include more hands-on training.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 9, 2010
Geared toward young people, Hunter-Ed.com’s hunting safety course is narrated, so students can listen, read, or both. Quiz questions are read out loud, and include pictures to help students recall what they’ve learned. Hundreds of detailed illustrations and animations give students a clear idea of what to expect once they’re in the field. Although it’s kid-friendly, the hunting and firearm safety content is very comprehensive.
Randy Huskey, TWRA Hunter Education Administrator, is excited about Tennessee's new distance learning options. "Because students complete the hunter education study requirements at home, the Field Day component can include more hands-on training. After a brief review and written test, our hunter safety instructors assess students' firearm handling skills and lead a live-fire session. We are very familiar with Hunter-Ed.com's Tennessee hunter safety course and expect these students to be well-prepared at their Field Day."
In addition to the online hunter education option, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency selected Hunter-Ed.com to provide hunter safety courses via CD-ROM and traditional classroom student manuals. Huskey has worked with Hunter-Ed.com for a number of years. "TWRA first approached Hunter-Ed.com in 2004 to help us update our hunter education classroom manual. They update our content annually, and really stay on top of things. For example, a few years ago, Hunter-Ed.com extensively revised their treestand safety section to make students aware of the latest hunter safety guidelines and equipment."
Since 2002, more than 1 million students have taken a Hunter-Ed.com hunter safety course. “We are gratified that so many state agencies and students have selected Hunter-Ed.com to be their hunter education partner,” says Kurt Kalkomey, President. “Hunter-Ed.com continually innovates so that we can introduce more folks to the rich heritage of hunting. Our motto is ‘Get safe, get certified’ so you can maximize your enjoyment of the outdoors. These days, very few people can devote an entire weekend or multiple week nights to take a classroom hunting course. The Hunter-Ed.com online course saves time and money, and opens up hunting opportunities for young people.”
Successfully completing a hunters education course is mandatory for most Tennessee hunting license buyers born on or after January 1, 1969. Hunter-Ed.com’s Tennessee hunters safety course (http://www.Hunter-Ed.com/Tennessee/) material is free to the public. Students pay $24.50 to print out a Field Day Qualifier Voucher that admits them to a Field Day.
