What you'll learn in this beekeeping class:

Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping will focus on the principles of beekeeping. Those principles include the history of beekeeping, honeybee biology, plant and pollinator relationship, and essential equipment and requirements.

The Midwest Master Beekeeper certification program consists of six levels: 
  • Beginner Beekeeper
  • Apprentice Beekeeper
  • Journeyman Beekeeper
  • Junior Master Beekeeper
  • Master Trainer
  • Master Beekeeper
By the end of this first course, individuals will be able to help experienced beekeepers in the management of hives.

Anyone can take the first three level classes for more information on beekeeping without taking any examinations. However, to move to the fourth level, examinations for the prior classes must be completed. For Basic Beekeeper, individuals must have one year of experience rearing bees before taking an exam to move up to the next level. 
Experienced beekeepers can test up through the first two levels of the program if they have three or more years of experience.

The Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping class is for any individual interested in learning beekeeping.

Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/24/2019
The class is taught by students who need to fulfill a certain number of hours to become master beekeepers. Some of the “instructors” are unfamiliar with the basics of giving effective presentations. I don’t doubt that the instructors are knowledgeable in their subject matter but that does not translate into an engaging classroom experience.

Can you please put a class room number when making events at Northeastern university? luckily enough my first encounter was my actual instructor in a hallway ,but, she didn’t specify a class room or Directions... I proceeded to the information kiosk, the students manning it had no idea where or what the CAPE center was and were trying to persuade me to get in my car and drive to adjacent community college. Either than that I find it very informative and hands on. My instructor was wonderful! I will be taking the next installment when it offered.
