A valid certificate of course completion is required of anyone born after January 1, 1960, applying for a hunter's license in the state of Nevada. The certificates must display the state or provincial seal (or logo), and copies of most recent hunting licenses must be attached when applicable.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) holds very affordable classes to help residents meet these requirements as they increase their hunting knowledge and safety awareness. The course includes home study and an in-person class to attain certification. The in-person session will last about eight hours, and a portion of the class will be conducted outdoors.

The home-study portion of the class involves online instruction and workbook exercises that must be completed. The workbook and the accompanying reference manual, "Today's Hunter-Nevada," are available at no charge from NDOW. Students must bring their completed workbook or a certificate from an online program to the in-class session in order to be admitted into the certification portion of the class.

Fees apply to each, and the in-person class session costs an additional small fee to attend. The classes are offered throughout the year, so use the offseason to prepare for hunting in Nevada. Hunter-ed.com recognizes the importance of education. "Hunter safety courses prevent accidents and save lives," they note. These courses teach students about laws and regulations in their area, firearm safety, and wildlife. Hunters should register for these valuable classes far in advance of when they would like to attend. The classes are managed by regional hunter education coordinators, and information can be found on the state website, HuntNevada.com.  
Students with disabilities will be accommodated, but must identify their special needs in advance. Students less than the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult, and the parent or legal guardian of every minor must be present at class check in and pickup. The NDOW monitors the arrivals and departures of all minor students, and any plans for a minor to be transported by another person must be arranged through the instructor.
