The MVBKA runs two courses each year. The aim of these is to train people to become proficient beekeepers.
The first course of the year is the Theory Course which is 8 weeks long and begins in February. In recent years this has been a combination of online zoom lectures as well as in-person sessions. At the end of this course, we hold a practical session so that you can get some hands-on experience with a hive. The cost of this course is £95 and includes handouts and a copy of The BBKA Guide to Beekeeping. The in-person sessions take place at Warnford Village hall on Tuesday Evenings.
For those who want to continue learning how to keep bees we then hold a Practical Course which spans the entire beekeeping season (May – November) with fortnightly sessions in our training apiary. This course costs £100. We cover topics that mirror what the beekeeper would be required to do in their own apiary.
