About the Course

The Internet + Field Course is ideal for those under 17 years of age and adults wanting a more hands-on field and live-fire experience during the basic course. We recommend younger students be accompanied by an adult during the field course. The certification process consists of two parts:

  • Online Course: Complete the FREE TPWD on NRA online course option.
  • Field Course: Attend a course with a TPWD certified instructor. The fee for the Field Course is $15.00. Some instructors may charge additional fees associated with a shooting range or other facility.

ONLINE COURSE: Free Online courses include TPWD and NRA. For TPWD, please print out the results of the FINAL QUIZ. For NRA, please print off the Field Course Voucher. Both allow you entry to an approved Field Course. Be sure to register for a known field course near you prior to taking the online course. Note: If you search a browser for an online course, you may get information about PAY-FOR courses which apply only to those 17 years of age or older.

FIELD COURSE: A Field Course is typically completed in about 4 hours (min.) a discussion of ethics, a skills course and live-fire exercises. You must pre-register for this course, preferably before you complete the free online course.

ARRIVAL: When you arrive at the Field Course:

  • Pay the $15 fee to the instructor. Some instructors may charge additional fees for a shooting range or other facility.
  • Demonstrate good knowledge, skills and attitude.
  • Take the written exam and score at least 75% to pass.

Howdy Texas Hunters!

Come out and earn your Hunter Education Certification on the sacred soil of the birthplace of our beloved state -

Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park!

The course fee is the regular $15 cash (exact change please - change may not be available) 

Bring printed proof of Internet course completion (all quizzes printed or the printed voucher, depending on the course.)

Be sure to register with your full, legal name to avoid certification issues.

There will be no live-fire exercise at this course and no ammunition or firearms are permitted at the class site.

The park is graciously hosting our class in the theater room of their spacious, climate controlled, Education Center with no additional fees.   All students must have their proof of Internet course completion.

Please provide an email address when you register so I can contact you.

Bottled water is permitted in the Education Center, but no other food or drink.  Please eat a hearty lunch or late breakfast before class as there will be no long breaks.  Students can access the restrooms nearby as needed.  Parents may accompany their child for part or the whole of the class.  Parents must be present for drop off and pick up (unless the student has driven themselves.)  Children 13 and under should be accompanied by at least 1 parent for the duration of the class.

Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park is a great location for picnics, with beautiful pathways by the Brazos River.  You can also visit a living history museum at the Barrington Farm, explore our history at the Star of the Republic Museum, and pay tribute to our freedom at the original Independence Hall beneath the same La Bahia Pecan Tree where our Texas founding fathers declared this land a sovereign nation.  They also have a superb gift shop at the Welcome Center.
