FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association’s award-winning NRA Hunter Education online course is now available in the state of Tennessee, the latest addition as NRA works to make the course available to hunters in all 50 states. Since inception of the program in 2017, NRA has provided over 50,000 students FREE online hunter education, fostering the interest and expansion of new hunters and shooters across the country.
Tennessee joins Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and West Virginia as states that accept NRA Hunter Education as a prerequisite for hunting licensure.
“With so many people able to enjoy the great outdoors during this pandemic we are excited to offer this new free online option,” said Jason Maxedon, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency deputy director. “Now is a great time to get outdoors and the perfect time to introduce someone to hunting. The new course is a quality online learning experience and educational opportunity for anybody to continue the process of safe and ethical hunting.”
Designed and provided by the organization that built the first-ever hunter education program in the United States in 1949, the NRA Hunter Education online course offers a fresh and fully comprehensive approach to hunter education. The 15-chapter, online sequence features attention-grabbing videos, eye-catching graphics and diagrams, interactive modules, audio recordings and dozens of action photos presented in appealing, easy-to-access components that provide the best method for teaching future hunters lessons they will remember for the rest of their lives.
All of this instruction is available at students’ fingertips, whenever and wherever they are able to complete it. Removing the sometimes prohibitive cost barrier of traditional courses, the NRA Online Hunter Education course is available completely free of charge, encouraging new hunters to take the first step and making it easier for seasoned hunters to revisit the material.
