After the class, you may choose to take the NCSBA Certified Beekeeper written test.  To become a Certified Beekeeper, you must be a member of the NC State Beekeepers Association (NCSBA), pass a written test, pass a practical test, and have kept bees for at least 4 months.  The practical instruction and testing will be offered monthly between March and September, weather permitting, on the 3rd Sunday at 1:00 pm.  The NCSBA has a study guide for the certified test on their website at http://www.ncbeekeepers.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Certified-Study-Guide.pdf  Additionally, you may see questions from the exam and a game on the home page of the ncbeekeepers website if you scroll down to the bottom and click on the link.
