Correspondence Courses

Want to learn more about Beekeeping, but need to do it at your own pace from home?

Further study for the BBKA examinations can be very satisfying but for some people attending day or evening classes is not convenient. Correspondence courses are a form of distance learning enabling you to study beekeeping while working at your own pace. An arrangement will be made with a qualified tutor for you to send your written answers to set questions that are designed to take you through the syllabus.

These courses cover the Basic Certificate (7 question papers) as well as the seven modules (5 question papers each) that form the route to the Intermediate Theory Certificate and then on to the Senior Theory Certificate. There is also a course which covers the learning for the oral aspect of the Microscopy assessment.

The fee for each module is £60.00. You may also need to buy or borrow a few books, which may be available in your beekeeping branch or county library.
