Hunter Ed Pre-registration

This 4-hour class lets you rely on your experience, home study and internet pre-study course to prepare.

Class objectives:

  • Address questions from internet pre-study course
  • Review of key information
  • Hands-on firearms session (no live fire)
  • Administer Department of Fish & Game Hunter Education Test


1) The recommended age for attendance in this course is 18 years of age and older. A parent or legal Guardian must accompany any student under the age of 18 so that necessary consents, releases and waivers can be signed at the beginning of the class.

2) Due to the home study nature of the course, advanced registration is required. Registration will be cut-off when the class limit (12) is reached. Class with less than 3 students will be rescheduled.

3) Students must successfully complete the on-line portion of the home study and print out and bring to class the official Pre-Certification Exam Voucher or proof of successful completion of one of the online classes.

4) The written test will only be given once. A passing score is 80 percent. This is NOT an easy test. Failure will require registration for a new class.

5) The On-Line Course is intended for hunters with previous experience and those who are willing to study extra hard on their own. It is recommended that ALL on-line study resources be used:

6) Once I have received your check with a copy of your CFW registration confirmation email I will send you the California Hunter Education study guide. It is imperative that you study the entire guide to be fully prepared to pass the final examination.
