The first class is Sept. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 13 from 8 a.m. to noon.

The second class will be held Sept. 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 27 from 8 a.m. to noon. Both classes will be in Lake City. Students who have taken the online course and wish to complete this classroom portion must bring the online-completion report with them.

The locations for this class will be given to those who register in advance by calling the regional FWC office at 386-758-0525 or going to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times.

Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.
