The Maryland Hunter Safety Education Program offers two programs for Independent Study. The Internet Based Course and Home Based Course (Workbook Study).
Workbook students must register two-weeks prior to class. The workbook students will receive the MD Student Hunter Education Workbook, Student Manual, and MD Hunting & Trapping Guide. Students must have the workbook fully completed before the first day of class (with 10+ hours of self-study). Please remember to bring the workbooks to class as they will be graded. Workbook study pre-registration will close on October 6, 2011.

Upon successful completion and approval of the instructors of the aforementioned, the student will be issued a Certificate of Competency in Firearms & Hunter Education, which allows for the student to purchase a hunting license.
