Training

The ABKA has a very strong training ethic and the senior members also train beekeepers throughout Wales.

Introduction

We provide training for new beekeepers to support and guide them in their first two seasons with bees.  We not only provide the knowledge required but spend much more time giving the new beekeeper the necessary hands-on skills and experience in our dedicated training apiary. Each new beekeeper is introduced to an experienced mentor who will provide hive side support for new situations as a *phone-a- friend” reference point in times of doubt. The full training scheme lasts for two seasons, consisting of the “Beginner’ and ‘Improver’ courses If people have no previous experience of bees we provide a free Introductory session for those considering enrolling on our course.  Until you have experienced being in a Beesuit with a large number of bees flying around you it is difficult to decide whether beekeeping is for you or not.  Let us help you make that decision.

The Bee Training Year

Bees are very inactive during the winter but become

active in the Spring. To ensure that the new

beekeepers can practice what they have learnt while

it is still fresh, our Training year starts  in February.

Class room sessions are scheduled for February and March, then the Apiary practical sessions start with the bees in April and conclude in September. Because the bees follow the weather and climatic conditions, so do the sessions. Such is beekeeping.
