Registration for a Tennessee hunter education course is now required to be made online. The new registration process became effective Jan. 1 on the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s website.

On the TWRA website, those wishing to register for a class will click the “register for a hunter education class” link. After clicking the link, there will be directions to search for hunter education classes closest to your area.

Registration must be completed prior to the starting date of a class to ensure a spot in a particular class. For those persons without computer access, they are encouraged to visit a local library or call a TWRA regional office for further assistance.

Advanced registration provides more time for instructors to devote to students. It also provides a quicker method for the registration process.
