DNR Education Programs

Hunter Education

The hunter education course instills in students the knowledge and skill to be a responsible and safe hunter. The basic course consists of 10 lessons during a minimum of 10 hours. Students learn how hunting accidents are caused and how they can be prevented. Hunter responsibility and safety are stressed throughout the classes, which consist of lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, practical exercises, and individual study and activity assignments.

Trapper Education

The future of furbearer trapping in Wisconsin is secured through an educated public that understands the need for and value in wildlife management. This is accomplished through trained trappers familiar with modern and humane methods of animal restraint, as well as the proper handling of furbearers. The mandatory WCTEP program brings experienced and skilled trappers, trained and apprenticed in the trapper education program, into the classroom where they can share their knowledge and understanding with those interested.

Wisconsin's Cooperative Trapper Education Program is administered jointly by the Wisconsin Trappers Association (WTA) and the DNR. The WTA is affiliated with the National Trappers Association.

ATV Safety

Riding an all-terrain vehicle can be a very exciting, exhilarating experience but in the hands of an untrained operator an ATV can also be very dangerous to operate. ATV's handle very differently than other vehicles. Accidents happen very fast, even during routine exercises like turning, riding over obstacles, or riding on hills.

The purpose of the Wisconsin ATV Safety Training program is to promote responsible, safe and ethical ATV use. By participating in the program students will obtain a better understanding of their obligations to the resources, the landowner, other ATV users and to themselves.

Snowmobile Safety

More than 200,000 registered snowmobiles will hit Wisconsin's 25,000 miles of groomed trails this winter, making safety an important part of the ride. Ride Smart From the Start - Take A Snowmobile Safety Course!
