The South Cheshire Beekeepers run various training courses each year:-
This course commences each year in late January, and consists of 7 sessions, once a week, running through into March. The course covers the basic knowledge students need to start keeping their own bees, and will also include practical sessions at the Club Apiary during the summer, and membership of the British Beekeepers Association.
In 2019 we ran 4 Workshops for beekeepers who have had their own bees for 2-3 years, but feel that they could benefit by some expert help with some of the more complicated hive manipulations. Unfortunately, it was not possible to repeat the offer in 2020 for social distancing reasons but we hope to be able to offer classes again in 2021.
British Beekeeping Association Modules
Each year a few courses are run in preparation for different BBKA Modules which lead to the qualification of Master Beekeeper. These tend to be organised by the Tutors themselves, and vary from year to year.
