Basic Assessment course and ‘mock’

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The MBBKA are looking to run a Basic Assessment course this coming summer.

Please note that to take the Basic Assessment you should have managed a colony of bees for a minimum of 12 months.

The course will consist of a theory session and a practical session with a mock assessment.

The dates are Saturday, June 15th (10am – 4pm) and, whilst the location is to be confirmed, it will probably be held at Missenden Walled Gardens, Great Missenden. The second session and mock assessment will be held on Saturday, June 29th (at the association apiary). The actual Basic Assessment exam itself will take place in July (date t.b.a.) at the association apiary.

This course and mock assessment is free of charge.

The Basic Assessment itself costs about £25 but you are free to do the course and not take the exam. The Basic Assessment consists of making a frame, a colony inspection and some verbal theory questions in the form of a chat with the assessor.

If you would like to take part, or have any questions, then please email
