Master Beekeeper Program Testing
The NCSBA Master Beekeeper Program committee will offer written testing for Journeyman and Master levels on June 26, 2021.
Pre-registration is mandatory, and all approved registrants will be required to sign a “Waiver of Liability” to participate. CDC guidelines will be followed limiting participants to 30 beekeepers, approved face coverings are required and social distancing mandated. To start the registration process, candidates should email stating their name, the testing level they require, and their NCSBA number. They will receive a reply email with additional details. Registration will close June 11, 2021.
Testing will be held in the class room at Hidden Happiness Bee Farm, 1106 Chestnut Mountain Road, Deep Gap, NC 28618. This is located about 1 mile off SR 421 on the Wilkes County, Watauga County line in the western part of North Carolina. If sufficient interest exists, a second testing date and site will be established in the central to eastern part of the state.
