The Gadsden County course takes place in Classroom 120 at the Florida Public Safety Institute, 85 Academy Drive, Havana. The Institute is west of the city of Midway on U.S. 90.
The Liberty County course takes place at the Woodmen of the World Camp, 22459 N.E. Woodmen of the World Road, Hosford.
Instruction for both courses is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT, Aug. 30.
Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.
An adult must accompany children under the age of 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.
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.
