The sessions that run from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturday and 1:30 – 4:00 pm on Sunday will be held at the Charles H. Garrett Community Center, located at 182 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro. 

Topics that will be covered during the 10 hour classroom course will be firearm and hunting safety, wildlife management principles, ethics, game identification and outdoor survival.

Students must successfully complete a live-fire exercise with both formats. Firearms and ammunition are provided for the live-fire exercise so students should not bring their own.
