The Olympia Beekeepers Association currently holds Apprenticeship classes throughout the year. The current schedule for our next class is as follows.

Winter Apprentice Level Class

NOTE: New Apprenticeship Class starts February 8th going through to April 5th. The class is limited to 20 people.

If you are somewhat new to beekeeping, want to start beekeeping, or want to refresh your knowledge and skills about beekeeping, the Apprentice Level course is for you!

This course will be held online from February 8th through April 5th, Wednesday evenings at 6 pm. A hands-on and in-person session will be scheduled during the course as well. 

The course fee is $50. As always it requires current membership to Olympia Beekeepers Association. 

The fee includes receiving your certificate on successful completion of the course.

We discussed both during the January 2023 Board Meeting. Journeyman should be available in the next 2-3 months. we will keep members updated on this.
