I 1974\75 I took my Alberta Conservation and Hunter Education course in school, grade 9. I still have the course manual and a small wallet card but I've lost the actual certificate.

Our school principal also let us fire his hand guns right in our classroom.

I haven't hunted in 40 years so I'm planning to take the course again anyway. Looking forward to getting out and doing some hunting next year.

Thanks for posting this, I want my wife to take the course but I'm doubtful I could get her to got to an in class course. Tough to get the time with 3 little boys but this is definitely doable.

Just took it, has 100 questions which you have 90 minutes to complete. You need a score of 80% to pass.

Same here - Often when we have issues with internet applications on the Mac, we will try using the Chrome browser instead of Safari. But if I remember correctly, my eldest son ended up just doing it on IncrediGirl's old PC laptop instead because we were having too much grief doing it on the Mac.

Default Took the online course

I took the online course and found it lacking. Maybe it's because I am older and had a father that took me hunting and into the wilderness. What I found that blew my mind was they spent zero time discussing the draw, WMU, licensing and application process. So at the end of it I am still confused how to navigate the system.
It was nice to do it at night at my convenience, but would have liked a person to grill on the rules, as that's where I need the help.

Just my 2 cents

its up to $95 now...

Can you still avoid this by having hunter course cards and past hunting licences from other provinces?

Default Hunters Education

The coarse is 100 questions and there is a time limit.
I found a lot of trick questions so you must read them carefully before answering.
you need 80% to pass and the questions cover a large array of topics.
Just make sure you study.
If your weakness is game birds then study that closely.
Or if your a rifle hunter and don't know much about bow hunting, study bow hunting ect. Because it will be on the test.
You'll have to know what's ethical or not and the technical aspect of bow and rifle parts.
You'll have to know survival basics and first aid.
you'll also need to study your wmu's and restrictions, whats legal to hunt, where and when.
Just make sure you study and understand each module.
Yes it lacks in wmu information but they do have question about wmu's.
So study external information about the wmu's and restrictions.
Best of luck!

Yes you can by holding a certificate number you login to your Alberta Relm account and add the number to your W.I.N card information.

You'll have to carry the certificate with you while hunting for proof of out of province training.

If you do not have the certificate number or card you'll have to take the Alberta hunters education course to get one.

Simply checking the box saying you have out of province education with out a number doesn't work.
You'll need that number proof of education.
