HUNTERcourse.com, North America’s leading provider of online hunter education, is pleased to announce the launch of its online hunter education course for Nova Scotia. Developed in partnership with Nova Scotia’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) the new online course provides the province’s new hunters with an engaging and convenient way to learn safe and ethical hunting practices.
Charlie Parker, Minister of Natural Resources for Nova Scotia, says of the new course option, “Our government is helping new hunters by modernizing the way safe hunting practices are taught. This online course delivers a better education product in a more accessible way.”
Brent McNamee, co-founder of HUNTERcourse.com, adds, “We believe that hunters in Nova Scotia will appreciate the option of studying in the convenience of their own home and at their own pace. The interactivity of the course is also a huge benefit. The learning experience is brought to life for students. We hope this online course not only provides students with the knowledge to be safe hunters, but also eliminates barriers to entry into hunting and helps recruit new hunters in Nova Scotia.”
The new course is now available and can be taken by anyone 14 years of age or older. On successful completion of the online course, the student will take a final written exam at a local DNR office. After passing the final exam, the student will receive their Nova Scotia Wildlife Resources Card and be eligible to apply for a Nova Scotia hunting license.
To register for the Nova Scotia online hunter education course, students must visit the Nova Scotia DNR website at https://www.hmcgroup.ca/education/. Prospective students must also pass the Canadian Firearms Safety Course, information about which is available on the DNR website.
These improvements to hunter education build on the online crossbow course that was introduced by the province of Nova Scotia and HUNTERcourse.com in 2009. Hunters must first complete a hunter education course and possess the Nova Scotia Wildlife Resources Card before taking the online crossbow course. Links to the new hunter education course and the crossbow course are available at www.huntercourse.com/canada/novascotia.
