Trapper Education volunteer instructor cubby

Our volunteer instructors have made Wisconsin's Cooperative Trapper Education Program (WCTEP)the best in the nation with their dedication to educating men and women to be responsible, ethical trappers. This volunteer instructor page contains instructor materials, forms and other helpful resources for Trapper Education instructors.

Active instructors can log in to the instructor database to create a new class, add students and finalize your roster. Remember, you must notify the statewide coordinators when you post a class and to request class materials. It is recommended you double-check to be sure your class posted correctly.

If you are interested in becoming a Trapper Education instructor, please fill out an apprenticeship application form[PDF] and send it to the WDNR Trapper Education Coordinator (see contact information on right). Review the criteria for becoming an instructor [PDF] and contact a local instructor or District Coordinator [PDF]to find a mentor. If you meet the criteria and have completed an apprenticeship, fill out the instructor application form [PDF], have your mentor approve and sign the form, and send the completed form to the WDNR Trapper Education Coordinator (see contact information on right).
