We have continued to increase our online-only delivery as an additional way of reducing barriers to education, and to increase course availability.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
HUNTERcourse.com and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VADGIF) are pleased to announce that hunters aged 12 and older can now take their required Virginia hunter education course entirely online at HUNTERcourse.com.
In Virginia, hunters between 12 and 15 years of age must pass an VADGIF-approved hunter education course in order to purchase a hunting license. The launch of the online-only course will allow hunters to complete their certification in preparation for spring turkey season, which runs from April 9th to May 1st.
“We have continued to increase our online-only delivery as an additional way of reducing barriers to education, and to increase course availability,” said Tom Guess, Deputy Director Agency Outreach for the VADGIF. “Building on the success of the adult online-only course, and with the addition of the Virtual Field Day, we are excited to offer HUNTERcourse.com to young hunters in need of their hunter education certification.”
One of the key features of HUNTERcourse.com is its Virtual Field Day, which mimics the live Field Day used in most classroom courses. Using video, interactive animations and detailed illustrations, the Virtual Field Day allows new hunters to test their knowledge in real-life decision-making scenarios.
“We have received awesome feedback since adding the Virtual Field Day to our online-only hunter education course,” said Kerry Moher, Vice President at Fresh Air Educators, makers of HUNTERcourse.com. “Over 90% of students say that the Virtual Field Day has better prepared them for the field.”
The online-only Virginia Hunter Education course includes 12 study chapters and 12 chapter quizzes, followed by the Virtual Field Day. After passing the Virtual Field Day, the student can print off his or her course completion certificate and purchase their hunting licenses online.
The online-only Virginia hunter education course is now available at HUNTERcourse.com
