SHORT COURSE

Beekeeping for Beginners

Description

Are you an aspiring apiarist or looking for ways to contribute to helping bee populations and the environment? Learn how to introduce and maintain hives, harvest honey and hive products, restore agricultural systems and meet legislative requirements for keeping bees.

This course will involve both on campus theory work and practical work at an offsite location, approximately 30 minutes’ drive from the TAFE SA campus. The offsite location will be dependent upon seasonal conditions and will be confirmed by the lecturer.

The practical component on Sunday will be held at a local hive site. If you have a hive location that may be suitable please contact Program Support contact details.

All equipment, including beekeeping suits and gloves, will be provided on the day.

Bring your own lunch as we will have a quick lunch break in the middle of the day. Kitchen facilities will be available at the Urrbrae campus.

  • - Students will need to have access to transportation on the Sunday
    - Minimum age 16
  • - If the forecast for Sunday delivery is 35°C or above, or a Total Fire Ban (TFB) is enforced, the Sunday delivery will be rescheduled to a later date
    - This course exposes students to bees, and is not suitable for people with bee allergies

Short Course Delivery Locations Some short courses can provide accreditation for industry-specific registration, while others merely provide skills and knowledge in the subject area. Concession prices are available for some courses.
