MBRB requires this class but does not offer it to volunteers. The class is offered through the Minnesota DNR. As of 2014, the requirement has changed so that it now only requires passing the online written class – no field day is required any longer. DO NOT GET THIS CONFUSED WITH THE MANDATORY YEARLY PROFICIENCY TEST REQUIREMENT OF MBRB. THE PROFICIENCY TEST IS TO TEST YOUR SHOOTING SKILLS AND DETERMINES WHICH HUNTS YOU CAN APPLY FOR.
