Guide License Up-Grade Refresher Training

For Current Maine Guide License Holders

 It's an upgrade to the license you already hold.


A refresher course that boost your confidence in re-testing with IF&W

This 1-Day training is for current Registered Maine Guides that need a refresher class before testing with IF&W to upgrade their license.


We offer up-grades for all three licenses classifications: Recreation, Fishing, and Hunting.

Let’s say that you currently hold a Registered Maine Guide License in Hunting, and you’ve decided that you would now like to test for your Fishing Guide License to enhance the Guide services you offer.

This training re-prepares you to sit with confidence before

 IF&W’s oral board and to take the written exam.


Each year during the winter months we host 3 days of Up-Grade License Training. You get to choose which day benefits your license and services.


Topic Revisited:

•   Map & Compass

•   Watercraft Rules and Regulations

•   Practical matters pertaining to the license up-grade

•   Identification based on License up-grade

•   Catastrophic Events

•   Practice Test

•   And more


NOTE: For Up-Grade licenses: background checks within a year, need not re-apply. Over 1 year, a background check and "clear to apply" letter is needed.  and a current first-aid card is not required.
