MassWildlife's Hunter Education Program offers the Trapper Education course about 3-5 times a year (usually in early spring and fall). To be notified of upcoming Massachusetts Trapper Education courses, please sign up for Trapper Education notifications

Independent Study Format

In an Independent Study Trapper Education course students only attend 2 class sessions and complete an essential home assignment (which earns them credit towards a Massachusetts Trapper Education Certificate).

The main advantage with Independent Study is that this format allows the student to complete some of the necessary coursework on their own therefore reducing some of the time spent in class.

This essential homework is only part of the course. Students must also attend two class sessions and PASS the final exam as well.

If you need to complete the homework portion for an upcoming class, you can access the North American Basic Trapper homework online (please be sure to print the course completion voucher from the online homework to bring to day#2 of your Trapper Education course).

You may also use the online homework to serve as a refresher or study guide. 

Do you need to take Trapper Education ASAP?

A government-issued Trapper Education certificate from any U.S. State can be used to apply for a Massachusetts Trap Registration number. To search for courses offered outside of Massachusetts, click here
