      Intermediate Handling Skills

      Description This course aims to improve the confidence and competence of colony manipulation by experienced beekeepers. Specific management techniques will not be taught but we will practice a number of underlying skills such as efficient use of the hive tools, handling frames, queen finding, handling, and introduction, working efficiently with large colonies, dealing with difficult colonies, disease inspection, and colony destruction. It is a hands-on course that requires live bees for the students to work with. The Intermediate Handling course will be particularly useful for those preparing for the SBA Intermediate Practical examination, the Advanced Colony Manipulations course, for those preparing for the SBA Apiarian. Both courses are also suitable for those simply wishing to improve their skills. SBA syllabus: Intermediate and Apiarian Practical Assessments, module 7  Course Fees This is a Healthy 'BEES' Project course and fees for students are generously subsidised by the SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund, which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union.  Bookings are discounted to £65.11 which includes teas, coffees, lunch and course handouts for both days.
