Virtual adaptation for R-Licence accreditations

Hunters must complete the R-Licence Accreditation Course before they can apply for a NSW Restricted Game Hunting Licence (R-Licence).

This course is run locally by community trainers from hunting clubs and retailers as part of the Hunter Learning, Education and Accreditation Program (LEAP).

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the course is now offered via video conferencing to people in the comfort of their own home while still offering the same level of support from trainers.
