Here is our Northwest Sportsman's Club Instructor Team.

This page is a work in progress.  More pictures and bios of our volunteers and instructors will be added as they become available.

Jim Parman - Chief Instructor

Most of my working life was spent as a Federal Mediator, sitting between Labor and Management as they negotiated Labor Contracts.  After retiring in early 2003, I could finally schedule my own time!  As an active hunter, shooter, and reloader, I believe strongly in the principles taught in Hunter Education so I decided to get involved.  I began assisting with an instructor team in early 2004, and became a Washington State certified instructor in September of that year.  I also do some volunteer instructing in Idaho, and have State certification there as well.  My wife Ann and I live on an acreage near Newman Lake where we have both successfully hunted deer, bear, and turkey.

Rick Parman

I work in the production control department at Goodrich Corporation on the West Plains, where we build brakes for airliners.  I began hunting in Missouri at an early age and continued that tradition while living in Nebraska, Colorado, and now Washington.  I successfully completed my hunter education class in LaVista, Nebraska in September 1975.  I began assisting with Washington Hunter Education in 2007, and was able to devote time to becoming a certified instructor after many years of night school and graduation from Eastern Washington University in December 2008.  I became a Certified Instructor in May 2009.  I live in the Newman Lake area with my wife Christi, and daughter Jennifer.
