Examinations & Assessments

The BBKA Examination Board offer written and practical examinations to educate and set standards for beekeepers.

The starting point and entry requirement for all other examinations and assessments is the Basic Assessment in Beekeeping; this practical assessment tests the basic skills and knowledge of the craft.

Correspondence Courses are available to help prepare for the Basic, the Microscopy or for the Modules.

Most branches run study groups to assist with study for the modules. 

For information see your Branch Education Officer.
