Do you want to be a Certified Beekeeper? Why would you want to be one?
The Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association in conjunction with the UGA Master Beekeeper Program may offer the test for the Certified Beekeeper in 2014. If you are interested in participating, please monitor this page.
If you registered for the 2013 test, your money will be refunded. We were unable to get enough participants to hold the test in 2013.
What's involved: To quote the UGA Master Beekeeper website the Certified Beekeeper level is the first in 'an intensive four-step program designed to provide participants the opportunity to increase their knowledge about all things dealing with bees and beekeeping. This program gives participants the opportunity to learn and also teach others about beekeeping and promote the industry. It also helps establish the participant as an authority and an educational resource in his or her community. Individualized instruction is provided through a series of classroom lectures and hands-on workshops by experts in the field of beekeeping. Individuals should be familiar with the basic skills and knowledge necessary for the beginning hobby beekeeper.'
A date may be announced in 2014.
Prior to the test we will have a review session which will be held during a regular club meeting (to be announced).
