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 from us the recommended 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.
