Trapper Education is mandatory for all first-time trappers and Problem Animal Control (PAC) Agents in order to apply for a Massachusetts trap registration number. A state issued trapper education certificate from any US state is accepted.

The MassWildlife Hunter Education Program offers 3-4 trapper education courses each year in different locations across the state. Courses are typically offered in the spring, summer and fall. You may need to travel a longer distance in order to attend this course. Upon successful completion, graduates will be mailed a Certificate of Completion recognized in all U.S. states.

Those who wish to prepare for a course, review learned material or simply explore course content have a free online option. The Association of Fish and Wildlife agencies offers a free online North American Trapper Education course which covers the entire standardized Trapper Education course.
