Please note that the DNR's "Firearm Safety Course and Hunter Education" does not contain some of the necessary training on defensive shooting techniques and the legal, moral, and social implications of using a firearm for self-defense. The course also does not offer the mandatory live fire training that is required.

Visit the Washington County Sheriff's Department website to learn about training requirements.
