Check the Dept. of Fish and Game's website for a listing. You can take a conventional class with at least ten hours of classroom instruction. This is probably a better choice for kids.

Another alternative is to take an online internet course as a prerequisite and then you can take a class with 4 hours of classroom instruction. The total time spent is about the same.

Finally some Hunter Education classes have live fire and some don't.

These are a few things you want to consider when selecting a class.

Bill Tidwell teaches the Reed's Hunter Safety class as well as NRA classes. He does a great job. Here is his website if you want to see what classes he has coming up.

I'm told that Rancho Cordova Gun Club offers a one-day course.

I took it at Reed's with Bill Tidwell. AAshooter is right, Bill does a good job.
There's live fire (.22 bolt action rifle) at that one, don't know about Coyote.

Coyote Sporting Clays.

You could google em to get the contact info. I think the class is right around $100 but I could be wrong. It's been a long time since I took the course.

Typically HE classes run $10. Some charge slightly more if their expenses justify it. So most classes are in the range of: Free to $25.
