WHO CAN ATTEND?
This FREE course is offered to the general public as a service to the community and a means of preempting violations from taking place.

Similar to driving school, individuals who have received fishing citations may, at the discretion of the U.S. Attorney's Office and the ticketing law enforcement agent, take the course in exchange for having their fine reduced or waived.
