Trappers Course

The Alberta Trappers’ Association Trapper Education Program provides the Standard Trapping course, as well as numerous workshops and presentations to schools and other interested groups year round throughout the province. Last year, the ATA put on 44 Standard Trapping Courses to 665 students. This season we are well on our way to matching that again. The interest in trapping has grown greatly in the past few years and with the elimination of the challenge test, the demand for courses has greatly increased. The ATA is working hard to accommodate the needs of everyone who wishes to take the course and is currently in the process of training additional instructors to help meet this increased demand. If you are interested in taking a trapper course, contact the ATA head office and we will inform you of upcoming courses or put your name on a waiting list for your area.
