Course Description All hunters born on or after January 1, 1949 must successfully complete a hunter education course and show proof of hunter education in order to purchase or apply for a hunting license. The Colorado Division of Wildlife offers hunter education classes in both the traditional classroom setting or through an internet-based course. The Internet Home Study Hunter Education course is NOT an easy out, it is a challenging course designed to better fit busy or hectic schedules, various learning styles and to allow good student/parent mentoring. This course covers the “Knowledge-based” learning objectives that you will need to know before you go hunting. In addition, you must attend a class that provides additional training on important “Skills-based” learning objectives. The Registration Class as well as the Conclusion Class (Range Day) sessions will include firearms safety, hunter responsibility, game laws and other hands-on learning and hunter responsibility activities. Internet-based hunter education course students must also pass the same written exam and complete the live fire exercises required of all traditional hunter education students. Students taking the internet-based hunter education course will have to work hard, study the material and be prepared to attend a conclusion class that is at least four hours in length, not including the time it takes for the final exam and live fire exercise. Instructors may charge a student fee of not more than $10.00 to help offset the cost of materials or room rental fees. While the IHEA internet course is free, other online courses may charge a fee to complete. Which course a student takes is their choice.
