The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will conduct firearm hunter education apprentice instructor training classes at the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium, 9 a.m.-noon, Jan. 13, according to Nebraska Hunter Education Coordinator Mike Streeter.

Streeter said apprentice instructor classes are required for those interested in becoming a volunteer hunter education instructor. To be eligible for the workshop, applicants must be 18 years or older, live in Nebraska or five miles from the state border, be a hunter, have no felony or certain misdemeanor convictions and have committed no game law violations involving hunter ethics and responsibility.

In Nebraska, state law requires anyone 12 years of age or older, born on or after Jan. 1, 1977, to have successfully completed a state-certified hunter education course prior to hunting with a firearm.

Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium is located six miles south of Interstate 80 Exit 432 at the popular Schramm Park State Recreation Area.

Space for the workshop is limited. Interested persons should contact Streeter by phone at 402-471-6134 or e-mail at mike.streeter@ngpc.ne.gov before Jan. 12.
