BBKA Basic Assessment
This is the BBKA’s basic oral and practical assessment that is usually carried out in a local apiary by qualified assessors.
We recommend all beekeepers do it, experienced or not, so long as you have at least one years experience.
It’s very satisfying doing it and gives you more confidence.
It is also a requirement for anyone who wishes to develop their knowledge and take either the modules leading to the Intermediate and Senior Theoretical certificate or the practical General or Advanced certificate in Beekeeping Husbandry.
To encourage you to take the assessment and reward your efforts the Kent Beekeepers Association will refund any member who passes the cost of their exam fee.
For further information about the Basic Assessment, including the current syllabus, please visit the Assessment section of the BBKA website.
If you’d like to apply, please contact the County Examinations Secretary.
