If you are interested in keeping bees please contact your nearest branch. All the Branches will be very pleased to help you learn about beekeeping and provide practical training and advice.
New beekeepers are encouraged to take the BBKA Basic Assessment, which covers the essential things that beekeepers need to know to keep bees successfully.
For those who want to get higher level qualifications there is a structure leading up to the highest qualification, Master Beekeeper.
