The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) Program is British Columbia's Hunter Education Program. It is also a great program for anyone interested in outdoor recreation.
Successful completion of the CORE Hunter Education course is required to obtain your Fish & Wildlife ID (FWID). You need a FWID to buy a hunting licence or to apply for Limited Entry Hunting. The CORE Program consists of a practical firearms handling test, and a written examination on all of the following subjects:
• Outdoor ethics and game care
• Firearm handling and archery equipment
• Hunting regulations
• Animals of British Columbia
• Birds of British Columbia
• Outdoor survival, first aid & field craft
• Hunter heritage, conservation and wildlife management
