THE BASIC ASSESSMENT IN BEEKEEPING

Following on from our Beginner’s Beekeeping course, the BBKA “Basic Assessment in Beekeeping” provides a way of confirming your knowledge and skill in handling bees.   You need to have kept bees for a year and know about bee diseases in order to take the assessment.   More details will appear in a newsletter.
