LGF Instructor Training Course
Participants will become certified in Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s Let’s Go Fishing (LGF) Curriculum. Instructors in the ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ program organize and instruct clinics in their communities for young people and their families. Participants in the training workshop will learn how to teach a basic fishing clinic, as well as learn about fishing ethics, aquatic ecology, fisheries management, habitat conservation and tackle craft. They will also be introduced to conducting specialized fishing clinics, including clinics on ice fishing and species-specific fishing. The class is informal, and it is not necessary to have a high level of fishing expertise to become an instructor.
Bring your lunch. There is no charge for the training, and all curriculum materials will be provided. An option for one credit is available from Castleton University for a fee.
Upon completion of the one day training participants will be required to complete a background check.
