Qualifications

We are committed to encouraging all beekeepers to obtain the BBKA Basic Qualification. To take this qualification you must be a member of BBKA and have had two seasons beekeeping experience. The examination is a mixture of practical (including examining a hive and making a frame) and informal questioning about general bee craft (including bee biology, swarm control and bee diseases) taken by an external examiner.

The present cost is 18 of which the association will refund half for members. Information from BBKA, the syllabus and application forms can be downloaded here  Before applying please contact our Examination officer Tom Rettig for further information and advice (he will need to sign your application form).
