The BBKA General Husbandry Assessment

Have you been beekeeping for 3 years and passed your Basic Assessment? If so, you may want to consider the General Husbandry Certificate.

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 candidate’s apiary, equipment and honey handling equipment
  • Manipulation of one or more colonies of the candidate’s bees
  • Demonstration of a method of selective queen rearing

To apply for the assessment, please refer to our applications page. The HBA Examination Secretary will contact you to discuss your application.
