The BBKA Basic Beekeeping Assessment

The BBKA Basic Assessment is the simplest qualification in beekeeping. It is designed to show a level of competence in the basic skills and knowledge of the craft. Acquiring the qualification can be really important if you want to keep bees on an Association apiary or on a local authority allotment site.
