This Fundamentals of Beekeeping Course is designed to provide new beekeepers with both the practical skills and the background knowledge to start beekeeping with confidence. The program encompasses Langstroth, Flow and top bar hives and is suitable for all styles of beekeeping. No previous experience is required.
The course includes 3 classroom sessions (Wednesday nights) plus a weekend hive opening exercise during the day. All sessions are highly interactive and include hands-on skill building exercises. Included in the course fee are a comprehensive handbook and a textbook.
The hive session is weather dependent and we are normally able to provide alternative dates to ensure participation.
A certificate of completion will be awarded once the online quiz has been successfully attempted.
