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