Event Details

Find out what all the buzz on our Missouri Master Beekeeper Program is about!

This class will be the second level - Apprentice Beekeeper. Level Two: "Apprentice Beekeeper" class will focus on hive health and management. Book is included with the registration fee!  This course is open to the public and prior attendance to a level one class is not required to attend the second level.

Both Level 1 and Level 2 classes are open to the public without testing.

The Master Beekeeper program begins with a Beginning Beekeeper class (level one) for people who are just getting started and advances through five additional levels.  It is designed for all levels of interested parties to start beekeeping.

What do you get out of it?

Education at a college level for a fraction of the cost. Same material taught at the other Master beekeeping programs around the country except that we parsed it into multiple years without a 3 year requirement to start the program. 

There is no age limit for entry into the program, though the examinations may be too difficult for children under 12 years of age.

Why all of the interest now?

Due to the decline in honey bee populations and the awareness of the important role bees play in pollinating crops, interest in beekeeping is on the rise in Missouri, across the nation and around the world. In response to this interest, University of Missouri Extension developed a Missouri Master Beekeeper Program (MBP). This training and certification program will help beekeepers develop their skills through six levels of competency.
