Trapper Education course offerings

Mandatory in Massachusetts for PAC agents and first-time trappers in order to apply for a Massachusetts Trap Registration Number

The MassWildlife Hunter Education Program offers trapper education courses each year in the spring and fall. You may need to travel a longer distance in order to attend this course. Upon successful completion, graduates receive a certification of completion, which is required to apply for a Massachusetts trap registration number.
