This in-person course consists of 20 hours of instruction: five 2-hour classroom sessions (light refreshments provided), one 5-hour field excursion, and 5 hours of required reading from the textbook written to accompany the course. The course is open to anyone ages 18 and up. Space is limited to 20 participants. Completion of this course qualifies each participant to receive CEU credits through the Mississippi State University Extension Service Center for Continuing Education. Each participant will also receive a “swag bag” consisting of a SeaQualizer, a dehooker, and other on-the-water gear (a $150 value!).
