Who is Fresh Air Educators

Fresh Air Educators is a team of fun, friendly people who love the great outdoors and helping people enjoy it safely.

Our company was started in 1999 by Larry and Brent McNamee, a Canadian father and son duo with a passion for fishing and hunting, and a vision for making boating safety education more accessible by taking it online.

Today our team includes more than 40 course development and support professionals located across Canada and the United States.

Looking for a boating, hunting, ATV or snowmobile education card?

You've come to the right place.

Our online courses can help you get the safety certification you need in over 40 U.S. states and 10 Canadian provinces.

Just choose your course and then select your location. Most of our courses are "pay-only-when-you-pass" which means you don't have to pay to study and there is no risk to giving them a try.


Need an online education course for your state or sport?

Fresh Air Educators works with government agencies and school districts across North America to develop groundbreaking online courses that have real impacts on enrollment, completion and retention of students.

We've worked with Minnesota's Department of Natural Resources to build the world's first virtual hunting field day. We've worked with the Florida Virtual School to develop an online outdoor education class for high school credit. We can help you too!

Outdoor Education Courses

Across the country, virtual schools are blending online and hands-on learning to create exciting opportunities for students to master new subjects such as outdoor education. Fresh Air Educators is proud to be a part of the virtual school movement.

Today Fresh Air Educators is developing innovative blended outdoor education courses that earn students high school credits and outdoor safety certifications. It's a revolutionary approach that is turning a whole new generation of students onto outdoor activities like boating and hunting.

Case Study: The Florida Virtual School Outdoor Education Course

In 2013, The Florida Virtual School approached Fresh Air Educators about integrating our leading online safety certification courses into their virtual Outdoor Education Course.

Right away we saw what an incredible opportunity this was to reach young people who might not otherwise get a chance to take an outdoor education course. And we were determined to make it happen.

Working closely with the Florida Virtual School we integrated our BOATERexam.com and HUNTERcourse.com content and examination processes across the FLVS learning platform, while also incorporating hands-on teacher-led exercises into our previously standalone online courses. The result is a seamless experience for the student—including delivery of the student's state approved boater and hunter education certification when the course is complete.



It's the kind of teamwork that Fresh Air loves to be a part of. And it's the kind of result—a new generation of youth learning about safe boating and hunting—that makes us proud.
