The state of Florida allows Hunter Safety Certification by any one of four means.  One option is to complete half of the training then to complete the remaining training at a firearms skills day offered by state volunteer instructors.  In lieu of the firearms skills day offered by the state, you may receive the firearms segment of your training from a private firearms instructor.  Then present your online certificate along with your private instructor certificate to receive the Hunter Safety Certification.  This can be a valuable and timely option as private instructors may be better able to meet your scheduling needs.


All firearms classes include gun, targets, ammunition, eye and ear protection at no additional cost.

No range fees.
No target fees.
No gun rental fees.
No application fees.
No notarization fees.
No ammunition charges.
