Ohio Division of Wildlife will host a Passport to Fishing instructors workshop on Friday March 22, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Wildlife District One, 1500 Dublin Road, Columbus Ohio.

The workshop is a free one-day instructor training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors, similar to a hunter education instructor. Pre-registration is required as seating is limited, participants will also be required to take part in a background check.

By becoming a certified instructor, you will be able to help reconnect students with the outdoors. Resources available include grants, equipment, brochures, and training.

Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station fishing program with a fishing event. These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.
