The Apprentice Beekeeping Course is designed for the person who has had at least one year of hands-on beekeeping, has taken the Beginning Beekeeping class, and wants to know more about honey bees and beekeeping management practices. While the Beginning Beekeeping Course provides basic information for the person who is in the process of making up their mind or who has decided to start beekeeping, the Apprentice Course is for the person who wants to have more in-depth information.

Hive management is essential to successfully maintaining healthy honey bee colonies, but with so many different things out there where do you start? Just when you think you’ve learned it all, heard it all, and seen it all, there is always something new. Commercialism (i.e., selling books, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube) has added to this confusion.
Yet we continually use these things as our primary sources of information. The truth is, if you want to be a better beekeeper, listen to the bees, they tell us everything we need to know.
Every winter millions of honey bee colonies are lost because we are not listening to the bees. It has been well documented that the four major causes of honey bee colonies’ winter losses are mites, moisture or poor ventilation, not enough bees, and starvation. Yet, we keeping on doing the same things hoping for different results. The four causes of winter die-off can be greatly reduced if we simply follow these three rules:
By doing these things you will keep a strong and healthy hive. It is for this reason that we have decided to do workshops focusing on the four causes of winter die-off this year.
