About Our Courses
Beginners 6 Session Spring Theory Course
This course is over 6 consecutive weekly sessions each of around 2 hours duration. The course covers all the important aspects of beekeeping and prepares the delegate for practical sessions at our members only apiary for those who choose to join our association. As part of this course, you have the option to purchase the book "BBKA Guide to Beekeeping". You can download our course content here.
We usually run this course early in the year in preparation of the build-up of colonies during spring. By then, you will be ready and prepared for our practical hands-on sessions at our association apiary where you will be tutored by our experienced beekeepers.
Our next Beginners Course is already scheduled for 4th March, 2020 and you can reserve your place here. There will be a special concession for a parent wishing to bring a child along to the course.

After the classroom session, you will visit our association apiary where we will don you in a suitable beesuit and introduce you to our live bees. You will be thrilled by the 2 hour experience of participating in an inspection of our colonies that you won’t forget easily. And it'll make a great talking point with your friends and colleagues on Monday morning!
