The FCBA Bee School is designed to provide you, through presentations, demonstrations, mentors, class instruction and practical experience, the skills and knowledge you will need to become a certified beekeeper.
We have recently moved most of the classes to an online platform due to the pandemic but still offer in person instruction for the hands-on portion in the bee yard and some in person equipment demonstrations.
Students will be assigned a mentor who can assist you. As mentioned above, classes will be a combination of in person and virtual class over the course of 5 Saturdays that will culminate with a practical hands on examination of your new beekeeping skills.
There will be an opportunity to take the NCSBA Certified Beekeeping Written Exam at the end of the courses.
A good reference guide to the material that we will be teaching from can be found in the following book which you can purchase here on Amazon if you so choose.We typically open up registration for the upcoming year in mid to late December and will update our website once we firmed up dates and times.
