New: 2021 webinar series

Following the success of the 2020 webinar series, we have announced a new series of topics for 2021.

The series begins with a free webinar on module exam techniques.

Short Courses

Weekend courses to advance specific skills and study for the beekeeper with 3 or more years of experience and who may be studying for the BBKA, SBA, WBKA, or FIBKA examinations and assessments.

Each course is a mix of theory, practice, and discussion appropriate to the subject matter. With 2 expert tutors and up to 12 students, attendees can really advance their skills and knowledge.

Online Courses

Using one of the leading online teaching platforms, the course content will be broken down into bite-size sections, comprising videos, short lectures, downloads and activities. We will also be trialling regular Zoom tutorial sessions for course students and tutors to discuss any queries arising from the materials.

Study at your own pace, in the order that you choose, and from the comfort of your own home, but still with direct access to our expert tutors when needed.
