The course is not a requirement in Michigan, but the Depart- ment of Natural Resources and the conservation com- munity strongly encourage new trappers to take advan- tage of the knowledge and skills taught in the course. The purpose of the trapper education program is to help individuals throughout the U.S. acquire the knowl- edge, skill, attitude and judgment to selectively and re- sponsibly trap furbearing animals. To find a nearby traditional classroom course, go to www.michigan.gov/recreationalsafety for a searchable database of class offerings. There maybe fees associated with the traditional classroom course. The online course is free and can be found at www.trappered.com (click on U.S. Trapper Education Course). Students taking the course online are strongly encouraged to pre-register with a classroom instructor to fulfill the skill/field test portion of the course, and to take the Michigan student examination. There may be fees associated with the skills/field day. "Some states and provinces require a field day in addi- tion to the online program to have avalid trapper edu- cation certificate, and this program is designed to meetthoserequirements," said Sgt. Tom Wanless, program supervisor for the DNR's hunter education program. For more information on trapping and fur harvest- ing, visit the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/ trapping.
