Students must be at least 9 years old to attend and get certified.  The age of 11 and up is most ideal.  We recommend a parent attend for children who need help focusing, learning, or if you'd like to have some great bonding time. Each student must bring $15 in cash or check to attend.  Parents who are already certified or are not interested in getting certified but want to sit with their child need not pay. Registration begins at 8:30AM.  Class starts at 9AM. Do not be late. The first half of the day will be the classroom course at the church.  The second half of the course will be held in town, at 1807 W. Walker Street.  This will be the field portion.  Do NOT bring your own firearms.  The field day will consist of safety exercises, ethical scenarios, and the like.  Lunch is an hour in between the classroom and the field day, and students will be on their own for one hour.
