Attend spring 2019 SS&W Leader Certification Training

Minnesota 4-H Shooting Sports and Wildlife Leader Certification Training is designed for adults and youth (9th grade and older) that lead or would like to lead training in shooting sports or wildlife in Minnesota 4-H.

Classes will be offered in the disciplines of coordinator, archery, rifle/pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading and wildlife. These trainings meet the 4-H project leaders’ requirements for certification and recertification. Although there is range and field time allocated in the schedule, the majority of the training is classroom work to become an effective instructor, not to practice your own shooting or riding skills. The PDC recommends that leaders attend the entire certification weekend every 5 years.

Mark your calendars now!

  • April 6-7 - Isanti County.
  • April 27-28 - SCALE Facility, Jordan.

Participants interested in instructing the 4-H ATV Safety Project in their county must be certified through the Minnesota 4-H ATV Safety Leader Certification Training (April 27-28 training, only). At the training, volunteers will be certified in the DNR ATV instructor Ccrtification, Tread Lightly! and 4-H ATV safety though classroom and field riding experiences. Instructors will also be educated on how to form an 4-H ATV Project, manage risk and plan programs. This certification is for adult volunteers only. There are pre-requisites for the DNR portion - please see the cover letter for details.

Information, registration materials and schedules will be online Feb. 15.
