Currently because of COVID we cannot hold any Trapper Education classes. There is an online class you can take https://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/requirements/education/trapping
The class itself is free. The tags are not issued by the State. You purchase them privately, name /address or Wild ID#. A quick search found a supplier selling them $13.00 for 50. Prices may vary.
Be aware WA is a cage trap State so how much of your stuff you can use from another State is a question mark. You'll see when you look at the manual available in the link I posted.

Thank you. I was able to find the manual, laws and restrictions. All of my traps are illegal and Iíve never cage trapped before. So I guess itís time to learn a new trick.

I found the test, took it and passed with only missing one (which I should not have missed!).  Does that satisfy the State enough to purchase the license or is there another hoop to jump through?
Thank for all your postings on the subject.

You should be able to purchase a license now. It sometime takes a couple days for your passing the test to catch up with entering your information into the system. Probably more so over the holidays.
