General Husbandry Certificate

Have you been beekeeping for 3 years and passed your Basic Assessment? Then this is the next practical step.

This assessment is designed for beekeepers who prefer the practical approach rather than the written examinations.  On the day, your assessment is conducted by two BBKA Assessors and consists of:

  • inspection of the candidates apiary, equipment and honey handling equipment.
  • manipulation of one or more colonies of the candidates bees
  • demonstration of a method of selective queen rearing
