Full course description
The University of Florida Master Beekeeper Program -Apprentice Level online course is the entrance into the UF MBP. It will introduce you to the goals of the MBP, explore the early decisions that beekeepers have to make regarding equipment, stocks of bees, and apiary location, and specifically relate honey bee biology to the management practices of beekeepers. You are encouraged to begin this course before you ever start beekeeping (although this is not necessary) and to participate in the course throughout your first year in beekeeping. This course should prepare you to obtain and begin to care for your first few hives of bees.
This course is currently broken into two sections (Part 1 and Part 2). This is Part 1. Part 2 will be available by fall, 2018.
