Students must bring their completed workbook or Nevada Online Course Completion Confirmation (printed off the and websites upon successful completion) to the class to gain admittance.

There is no minimum age required to take the class. However, students under the age of 11 are required to attend with an adult.

The parent(s) or guardian(s) of minor students are required to check-in the minor student(s) with NDOW instructor(s) at the beginning of class and pick-up their student(s) from the instructor(s) at class end. Under no circumstances are minor students to be dropped off or picked up without notifying the instructor(s).

Parents or guardians are also solely responsible for student transportation and should notify the instructor(s) at the beginning of class if someone other than a parent or guardian is picking up the student after class.

A fee of $5 will be collected at the beginning of class.

Individuals with a disability who are in need of special services should contact the Department at least 24 hours prior to the meeting. The contact information for each region can be found at the bottom of this page.
