Ohio Passport To Fishing Instructor Training in January
December 7, 2012
Columbus, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife would like to invite any adult, group, or conservation club who has a sincere interest in taking kids fishing to become a certified Passport to Fishing Instructor. A free workshop is available on Wednesday January 9, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and will take place at Wildlife District One, 1500 Dublin Road, Columbus Ohio.

Passport to Fishing is a one-day instructor training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors, similar to a hunter education instructor.

Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station fishing program with a fishing event. These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.

By becoming a certified instructor, you will not only be able to help in reconnecting students with the outdoors, but you will also have the skills and resources to help you do it in a more successful way. Resources available include grants, equipment, brochures, and training.

To register for a workshop, please call (614)644-3925. For additional class information, visit www.wildohio.com.
