CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is offering a wildlife control operator class for people planning to provide commercial nuisance wildlife control in the state, except for licensed trappers.

The once-a-year class is scheduled for Feb. 4, 2016, at department headquarters in Concord from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is required for part of the wildlife control operator licensing requirement, as well as successfully completing a Fish and Game Trapper Education certification course.

The course is offered by the Fish and Game Department, the New Hampshire Trappers Association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services.

The class includes presentations on the capture and handling of wildlife, humane and ethical concerns, relevant state laws and rules, federal rules covering certain species, wildlife diseases, best management practices and proper trapping techniques.
