(A) Completion of an approved course of instruction shall include passing of an examination and receiving a certificate of completion prescribed by the chief of the division of wildlife.
The 2009 - 2010 Hunting & Trapping Regulations Guide on page 29 states:
The trapper education course, taken after successful completion of a hunter education course, covers trap set making, trapping equipment, pelt preparation, furbearer life history, identification, and management. The Division of Wildlife offers both traditional instructor-led hunter and trapper education courses along with a home-study option. The home-study hunter education courses requires a four-hour hands-on training component. Persons interested in taking a hunter, trapper, or advanced hunting course can call the Division of Wildlife at 1-800-WILDLIFE (945-3543) or visit our Web site at wildohio.com for information on courses in your area.
A Fur Taker permit is $15 for both Ohio residents and non-residents.
