This CORE Hunter Education Course is completed over 1 day from 10 am to 5 pm.  Testing is completed in the course time. CORE Hunter Education Course BC Fish & Wildlife ID FWID
Successful completion of the CORE Hunter Education course is required to obtain your Fish & Wildlife ID (FWID).  You need an FWID to buy a hunting licence or to apply for Limited Entry Hunting. Formerly known as the resident hunter number.

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.

The CORE Program consists of a practical firearm handling test and a written examination of all of the following subjects:

• Conservation
• Ethics
• Law and Regulations
• First Aid and Survival
• Firearm Safety * BC Firearm Academy Strongly recommends completing the CFSC prior to attending the CORE 
• Animal Identification
• Bird Identification

The CORE Manual and the Hunting and Trapping Regulation Synopsis are the resource manuals used to learn these subjects.

Please Bring:
  • Writing material ( Pen & Note Paper)
  • Government Issued ID & PAL
  • CFSC Proof of completion if applicable

Two tests required

The written examination consists of 75 multiple-choice questions based on the CORE Manual and the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.

You must obtain at least 56 points overall to pass the written examination. Supplemental information from the CORE Manual is not tested.

The practical firearms handling examination requires the safe handling of two of the five types of firearm actions, including the identification and loading/unloading use of dummy ammunition. A minimum score of 23 out of 30 is required for a pass. The examiner will provide the firearms.

Individuals who have satisfactorily completed the Canadian Firearm Safety Course (CFSC) need not complete the CORE practical firearm-handling examination.

You must provide the CORE Examiner with the completed CFSC report form showing successful test completion to be exempt from the practical firearms handling examination.  A Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) and/or Possession Only Licence (POL) are NOT acceptable for the exemption to the CORE practical firearms handling exam.

Graduate Certificate

When both examinations have been successfully completed, the examiner will give the student a document of completion. The student must send this form, along with a $30 administration fee payable to the BCWF, to obtain a graduation certificate.
