Journeyman Class Registration

Journeyman Beekeeper Application

     The next Journeyman class will start in January 2023 and be held on 9 consecutive weekday evenings. If interested, email eliochel@snokingbka.org to be placed on a list to be notified when dates and times are set.

     Journeyman is the 3rd 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 and Apprentice certificates are to be earned before starting Journeyman. Also, you must be in at least your 3rd year of keeping bees because 3 years beekeeping experience is another requirement to earn the Journeyman certificate. If you are unsure which class to register for, please contact us first.

      Beginning Beekeeper may be challenged if desired; please call Eli 206-859-7392 with any questions about earning the Apprentice certificate. 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 eliochel@snokingbka.org if you wish to do so. 

To see the requirements for any tier, click here or go to the Washington State Beekeepers Association (WASBA) at www.wasba.org.
