In order to attend a new instructor workshop you must obtain and complete a volunteer instructor application form. To receive an application or for more information on becoming a volunteer instructor please contact Hunter Education Administrator, Megan Wisecup at Megan.Wisecup@dnr.iowa.gov.
In order to attend a certified instructor workshop you must already be a certified volunteer instructor. THIS IS NOT A HUNTER EDUCATION CLASS FOR CERTIFICATION.
About the Class
Instructor workshops provide training and updates regarding Hunter Education and Advanced Hunter Education Programs for volunteer instructors. Volunteer instructors once certified are required by administrative rule to attend a certified instructor workshop once every two years in order to maintain their instructor certification.
Both new and certified instructor workshops are typically held annually in March throughout the state. New Instructor workshops are 7-8 hours in length and usually held on Saturdays. Certified Instructor Workshops are 3-4 hours in length and usually held in the evening on weekdays.
Instructors must be at least 18 years of age or older to attend. Instructors also must submit to and pass a background check before certification is received.
