The online / home study program for the "Nova Scotia Hunter Education Course" is provided as an optional means of obtaining hunter education training. These alternative options are only available to mature Nova Scotians, who are unable to participate in a full classroom program.
Upon registration students will be able to obtain lesson and assignment materials that can be reviewed online or downloaded for offline study.
Upon completion of the course material, you will be eligible to make an appointment with an Instructor, to write the course examination. The completed assignments found at the end of each lesson, together with required documentation from the "Canadian Firearms Safety Course" MUST be provided to the examiner at the time of testing.
Examination schedules are based on student demand and instructor availability. There is a $25.00 examination fee, for persons who complete the course study through the online option, which is payable at the time of testing. Examinations are normally offered in the fall and winter months and less frequently during the spring and summer. The pass mark on this examination is 80%.
Upon successful completion of BOTH the "Canadian Firearms Safety Course" and the "Nova Scotia Hunter Education Course", you will be issued a temporary Firearm Hunting Certificate (FHC), which you require in order to purchase a hunting license and to carry a firearm in a game habitat.
