The Professional Development Program (PDP) was started in 2006 to supplement the education professional hunt staff receive on the job. Over the life of the program, we realized that the need also extended to honorary staff as well. We now accept honorary staff at the discretion of the committee.
This is a year-long course that runs from May 1 to May 1, in parallel with the traditional employment of hunt staff.
Each participant receives an extensive library of hunting books, audiotapes, DVDs and pamphlets. Professional staff participants receive a small monetary grant to assist with their expenses during the course.
Much of the class is conducted online through email. All participants will have access to the course instructor via email or phone at any time.
