Description

The spring 2019 University of Florida Master Beekeeper Program (MBP) training and testing day will be held for the Advanced, Master, and Master Craftsman levels of the MBP. Please note that the Apprentice level will not be offered in person. If you are interested in joining the MBP, you can find more information here: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honey-bee/extension/master-beekeeper-program/

Click here to read complete details of the in-person program (Advanced and higher levels), including test structures and content (Appendix F).

You can submit documentations of your credits prioir to the training and testing day by email or mail:

Alternatively, you can submit your documentation in person on March 7th. You do not need to have completed all of your public service, core, and major credits to test for the next level; however, it must have been at least one year (or two years for the Master Craftman level) since you last advanced in the program. For example, you can only take the Master exam this fall if you became an Advanced beekeeper on or before March 7th, 2018.


What to expect:

This training and examination day consists of two parts. In the morning (8:00 AM–12:00 PM) there are review lectures on important beekeeping topics. After lunch (provided) there are written and practical examinations (1:30 PM–5:30 PM). Please note, these training lectures are not comprehensive. Students are responsible for studying the materials listed on the reading lists for their level (MBP Requirements, Appedix E).

See full schedule below:
