Sheffield BKA Microscopy Certificate Course
Following the successful courses we ran in 2015 & 2017, we are repeating the course on our biennial cycle. This course is designed to mirror the highly acclaimed course that has been run in Harrogate by the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeepers' Association and we are grateful for the assistance and support they provided to help us offer the course in Sheffield.
The course will take participants through the entire syllabus of the BBKA Microscopy Certificate, showing them how to set up a microscope, extract and identify pollens from honeys, check bees for diseases, and make slides - preparing candidates for the assessment that takes place in November.

The training will take place at the Sheffield BKA Apiary
JG Graves Woodlands Discovery Centre, Ecclesall Woods, Abbey Lane, Sheffield S7 2QZ

All sessions start at 0930 and end at 1230. The course fee is £120. The first meeting will take place Sunday 6 January 2019 when discounted purchases on microscopes and related equipment will be on offer.
Meetings are scheduled to take place on the following dates:
