  • You must have your own hives (or regularly work with another beekeeper on their hives) and be comfortable with completing a general hive inspection.  There is not enough time in the programme for us to teach you the difference between a worker and a drone, or what capped brood vs capped honey looks like.
  • You need to be a current member to access this course - you can join online now and then register for the course.

Programme outline for pilot workshop:

  • Biosecurity for queen replacement, nucs etc.
  • Analysis of brood frames
  • Strengthening hives through frame rotation
  • Queen marking
  • Introducing a purchased queen
  • Creating a nuc / splitting a hive
  • Combining hives
  • Strengthening hives ahead of a honey flow 

We will be in the apiary doing as much hands on as possible – exactly what is done each time may vary depending on where we are in the season and what the hives are doing.



Scrubbed boots, clean bee suits and gloves for the practical part of the course. 

Light lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided 

After the Course, you will be emailed a link to the course notes and additional useful information, as well as a WAAS Certificate of Completion

Spaces are limited to 16!
