The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources Hunter Education Program is dedicated to the safe enjoyment of our outdoors. Through this program, students learn about responsibility and ethics in the field, as well as firearms safety.
All residents and non-residents born after June 30, 1979, must complete a hunter education course before a hunting license can be obtained.
SCDNR accepts hunter education certifications issued by other states in the United States and Canadian provinces. If you have a certification from another state, your certification meets the hunter education requirement in SC. If you have a question about your certification, please contact the Hunter Education Office at 1-800-277-4301.
SCDNR offers two (2) options to take the Hunter Education Course.
The preferred Hunter Education method is through a free eight (8) hour instructor-led classroom course. Classes maybe offered in a one day class or split over two nights. All classes end with a Test to pass the course.
The third party vendor (Hunter-Ed.com) who provides this online course charges $19.50 to take the course. After completing the course by passing and paying the course fee, you may instantly print out your South Carolina Temporary Hunter Education Certificate, which is valid for 30 days. You should receive your permanent certificate by mail in 2-3 weeks.
Hunter-Ed offers daily (including weekend) live customer service via email or telephone with a toll-free number. Today’s Hunter online course is the only approved internet course for South Carolina.
