SALT LAKE CITY — Volunteers are welcome at upcoming Hunter Education instructor training sessions in Clinton and Lehi.

"If you volunteer to serve," says Ja Eggett, "you can make an amazing difference in the life of a young person."

Don't be concerned if you don't have any teaching experience, says Eggett, assistant hunter education coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.

"Our training will prepare you to be a good Hunter Education instructor," he says.

Classes will be held in Clinton April 28-29 and May 12-13, 6-9 p.m. at the Clinton Recreational Center, 1651 W. 2300 North; and in Lehi May 21-22 and June 4-5, 6-9 p.m. at Cabela's, 2502 Cabela's Blvd.

Volunteers must attend all four nights to be certified as an instructor.

Volunteers also need to take care of online prerequisites at go.usa.gov/k5rx. The paperwork, along with $15 to cover the cost of a background check, should be mailed or submitted to: Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Hunter Education Program, 1594 W. North Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-6301
