TBG’s Urban Beekeeping Certificate is awarded to students who have completed the Urban Beekeeping Series which provides hands-on experience with managing hives as well as provides students with simple steps that will support honeybees and other important pollinators in the city, whether you intend to keep your own bees or just enjoy learning about their care.
To Qualify for TBG’s Urban Beekeeping Certificate:
- Mandatory attendance is required in all six sessions of the series.
- Upon completion of the series*, students must also successfully pass the Proficiency Check offered once each year in the fall.
- Past Graduates who have completed all six sessions of the Urban Beekeeping series can also be awarded TBG’s Urban Beekeeping Certificate by successfully completing the Proficiency Check within three years of attending the series. To verify past attendance or register in a current session as a make-up, contact the Adult Education Coordinator at email@example.com.
*The Proficiency Check date must precede the final session as the bees need to be “awake” for the in-field portion of the certificate test, yet still be put to bed for the winter in the sixth session. Current year students who opt to take the proficiency test will need to attend the last session after the test in order to qualify for the Urban Beekeeping Certificate.
Sunday, October 5, noon to 4 p.m. Rain Date: Sunday, October 12, noon to 4 p.m.
Past graduates and current students who have attended all classes in the TBG Urban Beekeping series can now register to earn a Certificate in Urban Beekeeping by completing this in-class/in-field proficiency check.
