Don’t just take a beekeeping course. Become a beekeeper with Ceracell’s Bee’s For Life Program.

Ceracell has come up with the fastest and most effective way for people wanting to become beekeepers. How does this program differ from other courses out there? With this program you get your very own colony of bees at the end of the day. What sort of colony? A full size hive, 10 frame full depth box with lid and floor, no mucking around here. This course will get you up to speed in one great swoop. How long is the course you say, well it’s a one day practical, no need for long videos and lengthy workbooks. We believe in the practical side of beekeeping. Plus you’ll have six months mentoring to ensure you and your bees stay on track. In your kit is the book, Practical Beekeeping so plenty of theory there to dig into as you need it. 

This program allows you to gain a full day of working with bees and listening to our knowledgeable staff on ways in which to handle and look after bee hives. Throughout the day our beekeepers run you through the program, some basic points that our beekeepers will show you are how to properly light a smoker, how to handle a hive tool, effectively and efficiently remove and inspect frames, basic skills in identifying what’s happening in the hive and the signs to look for in a healthy hive.
