NYS Department of Environmental Conservation now provides Online Sportsman Education classes.
Sportsman education teaches future sportsmen and sportswomen how to be safe, responsible and ethical hunters and trappers. After successful completion of the required course(s), students will receive a certificate of qualification that must be used when purchasing a first-time sporting license.
