4-H clover 4-H shooting sports and wildlife leader certification

To run a county or multi-county shooting sports and wildlife program, instructors must be certified by Minnesota 4-H. Leader certification training is designed to cover the essential knowledge and rules to become a certified 4-H county instructor.

The Minnesota 4-H shooting sports and wildlife program development committee requires leaders to attend the certification training every seven years.

The training is designed for adults and youth (9th grade and up) that lead or would like to lead training in shooting sports or wildlife. Classes will be offered in the disciplines of coordinator, archery, rifle/pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading, and wildlife. 

This training meets the 4-H project leaders' requirements for certification and re-certification. Although range time is on the schedule, the majority of the training is classroom work to become an effective instructor, not to practice your own shooting skills.
