South Dakota GFP Offers Continuing Education Hours to Teachers

South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks

South Dakota teachers who need Continuing Education hours can now attain them through two programs sponsored by the Game, Fish and Parks Department.

Not only will teachers receive hours to apply toward re-certification, but they also may become eligible to receive thousands of dollars worth of free outdoor recreation equipment.

Teachers have two options to get their continuing education hours through GFP. By attending and successfully completing either a National Archery in the Schools Program or HuntSAFE in the Schools training, teachers make themselves eligible for hours.

“GFP is extremely pleased to offer these training opportunities to South Dakota teachers and schools,” said Jason Kool, GFP’s HuntSAFE Coordinator. “Participating in these programs not only helps teachers with re-certification, but will also be an asset to their students and their communities.”

Archery training sessions are currently scheduled for Aberdeen on Oct. 13 and Rapid City on Oct. 19.

Training sessions for the HuntSAFE in the Schools Program are scheduled for Sept. 19 in Pierre and Oct. 15 in Sioux Falls.

To register for training or for questions, email outdoorprogramming@gmail.com or call 605-220-2130. The training is open to all educators in South Dakota.
