Beekeepers training

Beyond the Basic with Practical Assessments

It is possible for beekeepers to learn and demonstrate more advanced practical skills via the BBKA General Husbandry and Advanced Husbandry Assessments.

BBKA Modules

Beekeeping embraces a very wide range of topics at a level beyond the "Basic". Finding out about these is supported by a series of BBKA Modules

Modules address more advanced theoretical aspects of beekeeping,

In addition, the branch provides a variety of other training activities and workshops such as skep making, honey processing, swarm collecting and the use of wax for moulding, polishes and cosmetics.

As beekeepers become more experienced and perhaps qualified, those that wish to pass on their knowledge and skills to others and become involved in teaching, examinations and assessments are highly valued.

Ultimately, those with the motivation and capability may pass all their examinations and assessments and are then termed "Master Beekeepers".
