Trapping Courses & Study Guides
When there is enough interest to justify the program, standard trapping and conservation courses are held at various locations
throughout Alberta during the fall and winter.
Topics covered in these courses include:
- Humane trapping techniques
- Fur management regulations
- Fur handling and marketing
Course locations and dates are available on the Alberta Trappers’ Association website:
When courses are not available, potential first-time licence holders may purchase the Alberta Wild Fur Management Study
Guide to prepare themselves for writing the required examination.
You can order the Alberta Wild Fur Management Study Guide by contacting the Alberta Trappers’ Association:
