Interested in taking the home study option for bowhunter education or hunter education? Students aged 12 years and up can now study from the comfort of their own home and when ready, schedule a time to do the written and practical tests. Students can call their nearest district office to register.

Please note the Atlantic Provinces Hunter Education Course and the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) are two separate courses. Currently, the CFSC is still a classroom only course.

Classroom courses are starting to resume. You will need an outdoors card number to register for a course. Youth aged 12-17, who do not have a driver’s licence or NB photo ID, can call DNRED at 453-3826 to sign up for an outdoors card number. Please keep in mind that there may be a large demand which may affect your ability to register for a course. Please consider attending a course in another jurisdiction or patiently wait until a course is held in your area of interest.
