“The National Rifle Association will continue to lead the way to preserve our rich hunting heritage within our shores and indeed across the globe,” said Josh Powell, NRA chief of staff and executive director of General Operations. Our groundbreaking online Hunter Education course represents just one way how the NRA is building and investing the next generation of hunters and conservationists. We are proud of our long history and investment in defending hunter’s rights and please be assured that, through our training programs and other efforts to protect hunting in the U.S., we will build a better future for this great heritage.”
Designed and provided by the organization that built the first-ever hunter education program in the United States in 1949, NRA Online Hunter Education offers a fresh and fully comprehensive approach to hunter education. The 15-chapter, online sequence features attention-grabbing videos, eye-catching graphics and diagrams, interactive modules, audio recordings and dozens of action photos presented in appealing, easy-to-access components that provide the best method for teaching future hunters lessons they will remember the rest of their lives. All of this instruction is available at students’ fingertips, whenever and wherever they are able to complete it.
Removing the sometimes prohibitive cost barrier of traditional courses, NRA Online Hunter Education is free. It encourages new hunters to take the first step and it makes it easier for seasoned hunters to revisit the material. Currently Connecticut, Florida and Oregon offer fully functional courses available at NRAHE.org. NRA Hunter Services continues efforts to make it available to hunters in all 50 states.
