Important course information
I understand that this class is both intellectually and physically demanding, and that failure to pass written exams (>80%) or field tests will result in a failure to pass the class, or specific authorized activities included in the class.
I understand that I will not receive a passing letter for specified Authorized Gopher Tortoise Agent activities if I fail to pass the class (or specific class components).
I understand that Wildlands Conservation does not offer refunds of course costs or additional testing attempts if I fail to pass the course (or a specific class component). Failure to pass any part of the course will require me to register for the next available class at the regular rate if I wish to pursue any additional attempts to become authorized for specific activities as an Authorized Gopher Tortoise Agent through Wildlands Conservation.
I understand that FWC charges a separate one-time mitigation contribution of $544 to become an Authorized Gopher Tortoise Agent, and that this fee is not included in the course costs paid to Wildlands Conservation.
Be prepared for field conditions and bring sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, insect repellent, and appropriate clothing/footwear.
