Journeyman Class Registration
Journeyman Beekeeper Application
The next Journeyman class will start 6:30PM January 5, 2023 and be held on 10 consecutive Thursday evenings. If the information below does not answer your questions, contact Eli Ocheltree, Master Beekeeper, before registering or paying the class fee.
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; for earning the Apprentice certificate, please call Eli 206-859-7392 with any questions. Payment of SnoKing 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.
