IHEA's new online training for hunter education instructors available now

New online instructor training developed by the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA) makes learning how to share our hunting heritage more effective, accessible and convenient.

The IHEA-approved online curriculum, which was developed in partnership with Remington Outdoor Foundation, features lessons designed to enhance teaching skills using animation, photos, video and narration offering expert advice.

“This online curriculum was developed by IHEA’s curriculum committee, a team whose expertise in the professional development of instructors is unmatched,” said Tim Lawhern, president of IHEA. “The committee’s knowledge and dedication has resulted in a curriculum that’s considered best in class. It’s an excellent tool for preparing our volunteer instructors to teach new hunters to be safe, responsible and knowledgeable.”

The new online curriculum will help volunteer instructors learn how to create an exciting classroom, use positive communications techniques, teach according to students’ various learning styles and manage the classroom so it’s a productive learning environment.

“The more than 70,000 volunteer instructors in North American are the backbone of the Hunter Education Program,” said Jim Moore, president of Remington Outdoor Foundation. “”The Foundation’s funding and technical support combined with the IHEA’s curriculum allowed us to collectively create an online program that helps instructors renew their certification and encourages prospective mentors to help make hunting even safer and more enjoyable.”
