Apprentice Beekeeper Application
Apprentice is the 2nd tier of the 4-tier curriculum of the Washington State Beekeepers Association (WASBA): Beginning, Apprentice, Journeyman, Master. The curriculum is designed to be sequential, so the WASBA Beginner certificate is to be earned before starting Apprentice. Also, you must have kept bees for at least one season. If you are unsure which class to register for, please contact Eli Ocheltree, email@example.com, 206-859-7392, first.

Beginning Beekeeper may be challenged if desired. Payment of membership and of class fee will still be required, but experienced beekeepers or beekeepers who have taken another beginner class may wish to read the manual and challenge the online test. Email Eli Ocheltree at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to do so.
If registering for a class, please add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your "Contacts" or "Safe Senders" list to keep our response to your application and payment from going into your Spam folder. If you are expecting a response from us, please also check there if you have not added those addresses.
The next course will be offered in 7 consecutive weekly sessions on Tuesdays Oct. 17 to November 28, 2023. Each session will run 6:30 PM to 8 PM with as much time as needed afterwards for questions and discussion.
The $45 fee includes the class manual which is offered in 2 formats: digital and print. The digital .pdf is emailed to all students with updates provided by email and the print manual can be mailed by USPS. It has been requested that SnoKing offer a "Save Trees!" option, the option to receive only the electronic version of the manual and not the customary print manual as well. Please indicate on the application which option you wish. Price is the same for both options.
