The National Rifle Association’s award-winning NRA Hunter Education online course is now available in the State of Alabama, the latest addition as NRA works to make the course available to hunters in all 50 states. Since inception of the program in 2017, NRA has provided more than 100,000 students FREE online hunter education, fostering the interest and expansion of new hunters and shooters across the country. Alabama joins 12 other states that accept NRA Hunter Education as a prerequisite for hunting licensure.

“The NRA is pleased to partner with the State of Alabama to offer no-cost hunter education to their residents—increasing the odds of new hunters entering the field,” said Joseph P. DeBergalis, Jr., Executive Director of NRA General Operations. “We are proud of the relationships we have fostered with state wildlife agencies across the country, including with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. It is a team effort to promote and bolster hunter recruitment and we are grateful for the support from the State of Alabama.”

Designed and provided by the organization that built the first-ever hunter education program in the United States in 1949, the NRA Hunter Education online course 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 for the rest of their lives.

Futral, Hunter Education Coordinator for the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. “The NRA has a long history of working with hunter education programs and we are thrilled to partner with them in this worthwhile effort.”

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, the NRA Online Hunter Education course is available completely free of charge, encouraging new hunters to take the first step and making it easier for seasoned hunters to revisit the material.
