There are three options to become certified:

  • DNR offers online training and fee-paying. If you haven’t used the system before, follow the prompts to create an IowaID.
  • Catch a training session at an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Please contact your local Extension office to schedule a session.
  • Or, make an appointment at a DNR field office to take a test.
