Become a Hunter Education Instructor

The Hunter Education Program's goals are to reduce hunting related incidents and violations; promote safe, responsible and knowledgeable hunting; and enhance hunting traditions and values. We now have more than 2,900 instructors, who include game wardens, volunteers and professional educators. These volunteer instructors certify an average of 30,000 students per year.

Steps to Instructor Certification

  1. Complete the Hunter Education Student Course if you have not already done so.
  2. Download and complete these documents here.
  3. Take your completed instructor application to a TPWD Game Warden, who will interview you and submit your paperwork to TPWD. If you need a list of game wardens in your area you may contact your nearest TPWD law enforcement office.
  4. Review the required Instructor Manual prior to attending the instructor training. After processing your application, interview, and course results, TPWD will mail you a Congratulatory Packet with your instructor card, name tag and instructors patch.
  5. Attend a New Instructor Course.
INSTRUCTOR NOTES: Hunter Education Instructor: 16 Nottingham Lane, Boerne, TX 78006 DIRECTIONS FROM SAN ANTONIO: From San Antonio go west on IH-10. Take the Ranger Creek Road Exit #438 and turn left under the highway. Turn right at the stop sign. Go approximately 2 miles and turn left on to Upper Cibolo Creek road toward Boerne City Lake. Go about two miles and find Nottingham Lane, turn right. In less than ¼ mile you will find two ranch gates (#15 & #16). Wait without blocking the road at #16.

DO NOT BRING FIREARMS OR AMMUNITION INTO WNS Ranch Bring your own lunch and drinks if you like. You are also welcome to come out in the morning (8:30 start time) to observe/help with the Hunter Education and Field class that is going on that morning. I would further advise you to attend or help with the HE Classroom training style. Items you MUST bring with you:
  • Great attitude
  • Hearing Protection
  • Eye protection
  • Camp chair

  • Any Internet capable device (laptop, iPad, Smart phone etc.)  Personally I find a WIFI Laptop easier to see and use. Make sure to charge it before class starts.
